No. 4 Ohio State began its most important stretch of the season with a resounding 59-31 win against No. 19 Purdue on Saturday, flexing its muscles offensively in a win that should cement its spot among the top four in the College Football Playoff Rankings.
C.J. Stroud threw for 361 yards and five touchdowns on 31-of-38 passing and wide receiver Garrett Wilson was a star in return from injury after sitting out against Nebraska last week. Wilson had 10 receptions on 11 targets for 126 yards and three touchdowns, adding a 51-yard touchdowns run to his all-purpose tally.
