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.
