2nd quarter recap: Purdue 13, Ohio State 7

The second quarter saw both teams combine for no points and two turnovers, and the margin is still six, as Purdue leads 13-7. Purdue’s Caleb TerBush threw a costly interception in the end zone on an extended drive that saw the Boilers dominate time of possession. Braxton Miller’s interception came on a Hail Mary attempt with no time left. Ohio State will have possession to start the second half.

1st quarter recap: Purdue 13, Ohio State 7

Purdue used two big plays to jump out to a 13-7 lead in the first quarter at Ohio State. Purdue opened the game with Caleb TerBush throwing an 83-yard touchdown pass to Akeem Shavers on the first play, and Akeem Hunt returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown. Ohio State scored its touchdown on a Braxton Miller 8-yard scamper, capping a 67-yard drive. Purdue has the ball at its own 33-yard line to begin the second quarter.

Week 8 Previews: Big Ten Legends battle brewing

In my preview of Saturday’s six games, I take closer looks at one big rematch (Nebraska at Northwestern), a pair of major rivalries (Michigan State at Michigan, Minnesota at Wisconsin), two more with some intriguing recent history (Penn State at Iowa, Purdue at Ohio State), and a non-conference game with a Big Ten team hungry for a win (Indiana at Navy). I’ll be in Evanston on Saturday covering the Huskers as they seek revenge for last year’s loss to the Wildcats, so follow me on Twitter @BTNTomDienhart. I’ll also be tracking all of the other games with my usual Saturday

Vandy backs out of Northwestern, Ohio State games

The Chicago Tribune’s Teddy Greenstein is reporting that Vanderbilt canceled it’s 2013 and 2014 football games with Northwestern this week, and the same SEC school has also canceled its 2013 game against Ohio State, too. Northwestern beat Vanderbilt in Evanston earlier this season. Greenstein writes: “Vanderbilt officials made the decision without so much as a phone call to NU officials, according to the source. The timing of the move is apparently related to the Thursday afternoon release of the 2013 Southeastern Conference schedule, which will feature changes to cross-division rivalries.” ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg reported that the Wildcats had booked hotel

Heisman watch: Mark gets back in conversation

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller continues to strengthen his Heisman candidacy—not just in the Big Ten, but nationally. West Virginia’s loss at Texas Tech hurts the resume of quarterback Geno Smith, but he remains in the race. Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein continues to roll, and Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o also is in the mix. Miller also has a strong case. He’s coming off another sterling effort in a win at Indiana in what looks like a wide-open Heisman race.

'Elite' spotlights 2002 Buckeyes football tonight

In only his second year, Jim Tressel took an unheralded Ohio State team from a 7-5 record the year prior and survived a number of close finishes to run the table in the Big Ten and take a perfect record into the Fiesta Bowl, where they faced the defending champion Miami Hurricanes. Tonight at 7 p.m. ET (and again at 10 p.m.), our one-hour TV show “Big Ten Elite” explores that team’s undefeated season. Behind the heady play of quarterback Craig Krenzel, the two-way ability of Chris Gamble, and a tough, no-nonsense defense – the Buckeyes stunned Miami in overtime

Week 8 Player Rankings: Ball reenters list

With Week 7 behind us, it’s time for my latest Big Ten Player Rankings. Again, I’m doing these a little different this year. Whereas I used to rank the top 10 players – a practice that was tough due to all the talent on both sides of the ball – I’ll rank the top six offensive and defensive players each week. Why six of both? Because it opens up the field, plus there are six teams in each division. So, consider offense the Legends Division and the defense the Leaders Division, or vice versa.

Big Ten Links: What's ahead for contenders?

My first Big Ten Links of the weeks takes a look at how Wisconsin reloads on the offensive line. Losing star left tackle Ricky Wagner with a knee injury at Purdue hurts, but the Badgers front didn’t skip a beat with left guard Ryan Groy slipping into the spot. The result: Wisconsin ran for almost 500 yards on the Boilermakers. Groy has played every spot on the line, so moving around isn’t an issue. And, until further notice, he will remain at the key left tackle slot for the visit from Minnesota this Saturday for a Badger team that is
