In some shocking news heading into the Michigan vs Michigan State football game on Saturday last week, wide receiver Tarik Black was dressed and traveled with the team.
OSU's defense looked like it might have gotten exhausted or maybe got a little discouraged in the fourth quarter when it gave up three touchdowns in eight minutes.
"Purdue came out and played at a pretty high level, but also they got some help from Ohio State, who did not play very well", Palm said. They're continuing to improve each week even though star defensive end and National Football League prospect, Rashan Gary has missed three straight games. He said on a teleconference Sunday he wasn't going to address the situation, calling it "juvenile".
"Every time you thought we were going to swing and get back into it, we wouldn't score in the red zone or there was a turnover or we'd give up the big hit", Meyer said.
"It was a fantastic performance by our football team".
Ohio State's loss to Purdue was another reminder not to prematurely eliminate one-loss teams such as Oklahoma from the conversation - and Ohio State might not be the last undefeated team to fall.

Meyer was anxious about the team having a letdown going into a bye week and taking the Boilermakers for granted.
Purdue is just one-half game out of the Big Ten West lead. Hours later, Michigan State responded with a statement. The line was set at 65.5. It was still holding strong after three quarters at 21-6.
The killer was Purdue's scoring three touchdowns in the final 4:40 of contest. But teams ranked No. 2 in the country with aspirations of playing for the national championship do not expect to lose by four touchdowns to a team that lost to Eastern Michigan.

Blake Griffin brought his A-game, putting up 33 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and one block. And defensively it was susceptible to big plays. "We want to be in a position where we can control our own destiny, we don't want to have to be sitting back and waiting to see what somebody else does and we took a step in the right direction".
