Purdue throttled Ohio State 49-20 and handed the second-ranked Buckeyes their first loss of the season behind a signature effort from quarterback David Blough at Ross-Ade Stadium on Saturday night. 

The Boilermakers are now 4-3 after opening the season with three straight losses to Northwestern, Eastern Michigan and Missouri. 

Blough continued his scorching play in October and topped 300 yards for the third straight game, going 25-of-43 for 378 yards and three touchdowns, including a dime that was parlayed into a one-handed grab by Isaac Zico to open the scoring: 

Blough added a pair of touchdown tosses to game-breaker Rondale Moore, who finished with season highs of 12 catches and 170 yards against Ohio State’s 24th-ranked scoring defense. 

The Boilermakers supplemented their dynamic aerial attack with a rushing attack spearheaded by D.J. Knox. The senior rumbled his way to 128 yards and three touchdowns on 16 carries.
