Purdue football cheerleaders

The No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes (7-0) are back on the road Saturday to face Purdue (3-3).

The Bucks beat Minnesota 30-14 last weekend, while Purdue won 46-7 at Illinois.

The Buckeyes lead the all-time series 39-14-2, but have struggled in West Lafayette this century.

Purdue is 4-3 at home against the Buckeyes since 2000.

Yes, the Boilermakers have more wins over Ohio State this century than Michigan does.

Purdue’s luck has not been so good in Columbus. OSU has only lost once at home (1988) to the Boilermakers since 1967.
