  Draft Scout by Conference









  After two weeks of some uneven offensive play, the No. 6 Buckeyes were understandably anxious this week with giant-killer Purdue coming to town. Ohio State had reason to be wary of the Boilermakers, who had already upset two top-five teams this season. The last time the two teams met, Purdue halted the Buckeyes' 2018 march to the playoffs with a stunning upset in West Lafayette. No worries this time. Freshman quarterback C.J. Stroud was dialed in, throwing for 361 yards and five touchdowns as the Buckeyes struck early and rolled over Purdue 59-31 on Saturday. "It's going to build a lot of confidence," Ohio State coach Ryan Day said. "I don't think our guys were lacking confidence, I just think after the last two weeks - we were on edge a little bit this week, to be honest with you. We just wanted to get back in this game, score in the red zone and get our nose dirty a little bit, and I think we did that." The Buckeyes (9-1, 7-0 Big Ten, CFP No. 4) scored on all seven of their first-half possessions, piling up 45 points against a Purdue team that hadn't allowed more than 30 in any game this year. TreVeyon Henderson added to his impressive freshman resume with 98 yards and a pair of first-half TDs.

Garrett Wilson caught three touchdown passes and ran for another. "We were lucky to hold them to 59," Purdue coach Jeff Brohm said. The Buckeyes romped early, capitalizing on two Boilermakers turnovers, the second of which was a fumbled kickoff recovered on the Purdue 14. The 12-yard catch by Wilson two plays later gave the Buckeyes two touchdowns in 14 seconds. Wilson had 10 catches for 126 yards. Jaxson Smith-Njigba followed up a 15-catch, 240-yard effort last week with nine catches for 139 yards a a TD. Chris Olave had nine receptions for 85 yards a touchdown, the 33rd of his career and one away from the school record. "It's just real scary," Smith-Njigba said. "I think its hard for defenses to cover all of us." - Ohio State/AP College Football
