Historic College GameDay Built by The Home Depot Highlights Impressive Party on the PalouseCollege GameDay Built by The Home Depot, set in Pullman, Wash. for the first visit to Washington State, averaged a 1.4 across ESPN and ESPNU. The Spartans mustered 94 total yards (79 passing, 15 rushing), with MSU quarterback Brian Lewerke completing just 5-of-25 passes for 66 yards.
Haskins wound up 49 of 73, shattering Ohio State's single-game school records in both categories, and had 470 yards, throwing two touchdowns and one interception. It scored first and Ohio State never led.

"Coach Brohm has done a terrific job turning around Purdue's program in such a short amount of time", said Jim Terry, chairman of the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation.

Blake Griffin brought his A-game, putting up 33 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and one block.
But none of those efforts were as lacking as the Buckeyes' performance against Purdue.
Purdue made it 14-3 by driving 80 yards in 84 seconds late in the first half, thanks in part to punter Joe Schopper's first-down run on a fake field goal.
Moore's 170 receiving yards are the most ever by a Boilermaker against OSU in Ross-Ade Stadium and the second highest ever against the Buckeyes. Secondly, they had outscored those opponents 155-88.
Purdue jumped out to a 7-0 lead with 1:10 left in the first quarter on a 13-yard touchdown pass from Blough to Issac Zico.
