There are plenty of people who like to complain about unfair out of conference scheduling for the powerhouses across the nation, but what happens when two teams that are scheduled to play each other meet in conference play and the result is just as bad? Well, all you get is embarrassment.
The Ohio State Buckeyes came out on Saturday and absolutely destroyed the Purdue Boilermakers in a game that wasn’t even close. The Buckeyes stormed past the Boilermakers to the tune of 56-0.
While Purdue was not expected to win the game, you would have liked to believe they could at least keep things a big closer. Unfortunately, they didn’t show up for the game and the Buckeyes rolled.
Ohio State stormed out to a 42-point halftime lead, but they were nice enough to coast in the second half and didn’t put their foot on the throats of the Boilermakers.
Braxton Miller, Kenny Guiton and Carlos Hyde all had huge days, but on short work.
It’s unfortunate to see a Big Ten match up have no competitiveness, but that’s the danger you get when you have a team as talented as Ohio State dominating the conference.
