ESPN's FPI predicts outcome of Ohio State's Week 7 trip to Purdue
ESPN’s FPI is predicting the Week 7 slate of college football and a B1G crossover matchup between Ohio State and Purdue. That game is set for West Lafayette, a setting that likely gives Buckeye fans everywhere some pause.
Ohio State heads into the game as a huge 19.5-point road favorite against the Boilermakers. The FPI also gives Ohio State a 94% chance of walking away from Ross-Ade Stadium with the win. Fans looking to get in on the action can take advantage of our unique Caesars Ohio promo code to get started!
The two sides most recently faced off in 2022, a 59-31 win for Ryan Day’s program. However, it must be said that the game occurred in Columbus.

Ohio State’s last trip to Purdue came in 2018 when Jeff Brohm’s squad pulled off a 49-20 upset of the No. 2 Buckeyes. That game has become known as the “Tyler Trent game” for Trent’s story and presence at the memorable upset.
No one needs to remind Ryan Day (a member of Urban Meyer’s staff in 2018) about some of the oddities that have occurred in West Lafayette. He acknowledged the treacherous trips head-on this week but also noted this version of Ohio State is hungry and focused heading into the game.
On the other side of the ball, Ryan Walters has Purdue 2-4 overall in his head coaching debut. The Boilermakers most recently suffered a tough loss on the road to Iowa heading into Week 7.
