Jeff Brohm on Purdue's loss to Ohio State: 'We were lucky to hold them to 59'
Jeff Brohm knew his team was in for a challenge when Purdue entered Columbus to play Ohio State on Saturday afternoon. The fifth-year leader of the Boilermakers found out just how good the Buckeyes are, though.
Ohio State raced Purdue out of the Horseshoe on Saturday in a 59-31 blowout in Columbus. The victory bumped the Buckeyes to 9-1 on the season and 7-0 in the B1G. They’re still the only team in the conference with a perfect record in league play.
After the game, Brohm had plenty of compliments for Ryan Day’s squad.
“Ohio State has great talent, especially with the O-line and QB. At the end of the day, they made more plays than us,” Brohm said, per Eleven Warriors. “They came ready to play and executed really well on the offensive end.
“That could be a team that wins it all. We were lucky to hold them to 59.”
The Boilermakers entered the game with an upset on their minds. They had defeated Iowa and Michigan State — two highly-ranked teams — earlier in the year. While Purdue had a 7-7 tie on Ohio State early, the Buckeyes’ talent showed through quickly.
Ohio State is playing its best football at the right time. It still has games against No. 7 Michigan State and No. 6 Michigan to close out the year. Win both of those and the Buckeyes are headed back to Indianapolis.
