Ohio State looking to avoid having history repeat itself against Purdue
Ohio State and Purdue will meet again next Saturday and OSU is hoping to not have what happened 3 years ago happen again.
The Buckeyes come into this matchup as the No. 5 team in the country in the latest College Football Playoff poll. They’re also 8-1 as they’ve won 6 in a row since losing to Oregon. That said, they also have another streak going that has been in place in 2018.
They haven’t lost a game in the B1G since that year and it came against those same Boilermakers.
Ohio State has won 24 consecutive Big Ten games. The Buckeyes' last league loss? To #Purdue in 2018. The unranked Boilermakers play at No. 6 Ohio State this week.

OSU controls its own destiny the rest of the way, though Purdue has played the role of “spoiler” twice this season. A few weeks ago, it went into Iowa City and took down then No. 2 Iowa, 24-7 before upsetting No. 3 Michigan State, 40-29 on Nov. 6.
Purdue is also locked into a 4-way tie for 1st place in the B1G West as it looks to get to Indianapolis. Kickoff for this all-important matchup will be at 3:30 p.m.
