It’s easy to get up for a night game. Under the lights, in primetime, on the road. The Ohio State Buckeyes have had their way with the Purdue Boilermakers on the gridiron over the years, but this year, something seems to be different. Purdue actually has a few playmakers that can make plays. Specifically talking about true freshman Rondale Moore, who is by far the Boilermakers’ top receiver.
Due to it being in primetime, the Buckeyes should have no problem getting amped up and ready for this one. If they do, the video trailer will do the trick. Filled with plenty of touchdown-making big-hitting, and highlight-making videos, it gives us a behind-the-scenes look at Ohio State, all while showing some the scarlet and gray’s best highlights from the first seven games of the season to date.
“Hey, we have not put together a complete game. We work too hard to come out here to be average. Now let’s do what we do, man,” a player says to his team.
“In life you only get so many opportunities man, to strap it up with your brothers. Why we work so hard is for days like this, man,” safety Jordan Fuller yells to his team. “I want you to play with that swag. Play with that juice. I want you to play with that heart, man.”
“Enough is enough. Dig down deep,” head coach Urban Meyer tells his team. “If you can’t play the game pissed, don’t play it. That’s what’s separating the good from great.”
Purdue may not seem like a tough opponent, but whether it’s Ohio State’s struggles defensively for much of the season or having no run game over the last couple games, there’s a good chance the Boilermakers can give the Buckeyes a game, especially if they don’t come in motivated from the opening whistle and do everything they can in order to make Purdue believe that they have no chance from the start. This means that they can’t start slow, much like they have over the last few games. Luckily, when you have an offense that can erupt at any time,
“The best thing about 7-0 is the chance to go 8-0.” Meyer couldn’t be more correct.
Ohio State and Purdue are set to kickoff at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday night in West Lafayette.
