Here's the AP recap:
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) – DJ Knox rushed for 128 yards and three touchdowns, David Blough threw for three more scores and Purdue shook up the College Football Playoff chase with a 49-20 blowout of no. 2 Ohio State on Saturday night.
The Boilermakers (4-3, 3-1
Mistake-prone Ohio State (7-1, 4-1) had its 12-game winning streak
Blough outplayed Heisman's Trophy candidate Dwayne Haskins Jr. on a Buckeyes did not reach the end zone until early in the fourth quarterback.
Blough went 25 of 43 with 378 yards and sealed the victory with a 43-yard pass to Rondale Moore with 3:37 to play. It was Blough's third straight 300-yard game and its fourth this season.
Haskins wound up 49 of 73, shattering the single-game school records in both categories, and having 470 yards and two touchdowns and one interception. Markus Bailey scored on a 41-yard interjection return.
The Buckeyes were also called for 10 penalties and 40 years in the fourth quarter.
It was no fluke, either.
Isaac Zico capped Purdue's longest scoring drive of the season, 98 yards, with a spectacular one-handed catch before running out of bounds to make it 7-0 late in the first quarter. 15-yard penalties against Purdue's defense before settling for a 24-yard field goal.
Blake Haubeil then missed a 33-yard field goal wide left with 1:51 left in Bloody took the Boilermakers 80 yards in 84 seconds, using punter Joe Schopper's first-down run on a fake field goal to set a 9-yard scoring pass to Moore.
The Buckeyes tried to turn up the pace
After closing at 14-6 early in the third quarter, Hamilton was called off for knocking and the Boilermakers cashed in on their second chance with Knox's 1-yard TD run. Hankins finally hooked up with Johnnie Dixon III on a 32-yard TD to make it 28-13 and Terry McLaurin on a 34-yard TD pass to make it 35-20 with 4:40 to go, but Blough's TD pass to Moore and Bailey's interception return sealed it.
Buckeyes: This was not just a loss. It was ugly. Ohio State struggled to run the ball again, made many mistakes in all three phases and could not keep up with Purdue's speed late. Urban Meyer's third true road loss since becoming the Buckeyes' coach will not be forgotten any time soon.
Boilermakers: Purdue's first four-game winning streak since 2007 Jeff Brohm's second season in West Lafayette. Now the Boilermakers head into the momentum and visions of a Big Ten West title.  POLL IMPLICATIONS
Ohio State is the top 10 team to loose Saturday and is probably to take a tumble in the rankings, given the score and how poorly the buckeyes played. The Boilermakers may have to wait at least another week to crack the Top 25
Buckeyes: Have Nebraska on Nov. 3.
Boilermakers: Head to no. 24 Michigan State next Saturday,
