Recap


Ohio State 29, Purdue 22 (OT): A Jeff Heuerman two-point conversion tied the game with three seconds left and Carlos Hyde scored on a 1-yard touchdown run in overtime as the Buckeyes escaped with a victory over the Boilermakers despite losing Heisman Trophy candidate Braxton Miller to a suspected head injury.

Miller, a sophomore quarterback who entered the game sixth in the country with 912 rushing yards, was tackled hard following a 37-yard run on the second-to-last play of the third quarter and was carted off the field and taken to the OSU medical center. He passed a series of concussion tests and was discharged later Saturday.

Backup quarterback Kenny Guiton moved the Buckeyes 61 yards and threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Chris Fields with 3 seconds left, and lobbed a two-point conversion pass to tight end Heuerman to make it 22-22. Ohio State (8-0, 4-0 Big Ten) was held to 152 yards rushing by Purdue (3-4, 0-3 Big Ten), which allowed 467 yards in a 38-14 loss to Wisconsin last week.

Caleb TerBush (19-of-30, 230 yards) found a wide-open Akeem Shavers out of the backfield on the Boilermakers' first play from scrimmage for an 83-yard touchdown pass to make it 7-0 and Purdue responded to Miller's 8-yard touchdown run when Hunt returned the ensuing kickoff 100 yards untouched for a score and a 13-7 lead in the first quarter.

Hyde's 2-yard run with 7:41 left in the third quarter put Ohio State in front 14-13 before Purdue responded with an eight-play, 82-yard march, capped by TerBush's 31-yard touchdown pass to Gary Bush. The Boilermakers were awarded a safety when Ohio State's Andrew Norwell was called for an illegal block in the end zone.

GAME NOTEBOOK:
Miller was held to 47 yards rushing after compiling 335 in his last two games. ... The Boilermakers, who defeated the Buckeyes 26-23 in overtime last season, haven't won back-to-back games over Ohio State since 1960 and 1967 and have lost nine straight at Ohio Stadium since last winning in 1988. ... Purdue junior CB Ricardo Allen (leg) missed his first game after starting the previous 31.
