Buckeye back-up leads OSU to overtime win over Purdue

Ohio State survived a massive scare despite an injury to their Heisman candidate Braxton Miller as the Bucks improved to 8-0 to beat Purdue in overtime 29-22.  Kenny Guiton came in relief late in the third and eventually tossed a TD to Chris Fields with just three seconds left in regulation to help get the Bucks to overtime.

Miller was 9 of 20 for 113 yards and an interception before leaving the game on the next-to-last play of the third quarter after getting taken down from behind following a lengthy scramble.  He eventually was taken to a Columbus hospital in an ambulance, although no immediate cause was given. 

Carlos Hyde rushed in the eventual game-winning touchdown on the first possession in overtime to put the Buckeyes ahead for good.  He finished with 91 yards and a pair of scores.  Guiton connected on 6 of his 11 passes for 77 yards and one touchdown.  The Bucks were held to just 342 yards of total offense.
