ESPN's FPI predicts outcome of Purdue-Ohio State showdown
The biggest matchup in the B1G in Week 11 will be when division leaders No. 4 Ohio State and No. 19 Purdue face off.
Despite Purdue entering the College Football Playoff rankings for the first time, ESPN’s FPI doesn’t give them much of a shot against Ohio State. ESPN’s FPI is predicting Ohio State to have a 91 percent chance of beating the visiting Boilermakers.
The Buckeyes defeated Nebraska 26-17 last week. Ohio State is 8-1 overall and first place in the B1G East. Ohio State’s lone loss came vs. Oregon in Week 2.
Purdue is 6-3 overall and tied for first place in the B1G West. The upstart Boilermakers will aim to pull off another upset, as they’ve already knocked off then-No. 2 Iowa and then-No. 3 Michigan State this season.
Ohio State leads the all-time series 39-15-2 vs. Purdue. The Boilermakers won the last meeting in the series 49-20 in 2018. Purdue-Ohio State is slated for a 3:30 p.m. (EST) kickoff and will be televised on ABC.
