LOOK: Fans storm the field at Ross-Ade Stadium after Purdue stuns No. 2 Ohio State
Purdue notched one of the biggest wins in program history on Saturday night, stunning No. 2 Ohio State in Ross-Ade Stadium. And the scene after the victory was incredible.
Once the clock struck all zeroes, Boilermaker fans stormed the field to celebrate the 49-20 win over the Buckeyes. It was the first time Purdue had beating a top five team since defeating Nick Saban’s Michigan State team in 1999.
It was certainly a night that nobody will forget. And it was quite the scene in West Lafayette.
