Unbeaten Ohio State was unblemished Saturday.
Doran Grant picked off Danny Etling's first pass, returning it for a touchdown, and Braxton Miller threw for 233 yards and four touchdowns to lead the fourth-ranked Buckeyes to a record-breaking 56-0 victory at Purdue.
Ohio State (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) kept its national title hopes alive by extending the nation's longest winning streak to 21 in a row - and they did it in a venue where they had lost three of their last four.
Coach Urban Meyer, who hasn't lost in 34 1/2 months, tied his personal best by winning a 22nd straight game, a streak that includes his final victory at Florida. Meyer also won 22 in a row with the Gators in 2008-09.
Ohio State won this one in dominant fashion, too, scoring the most points and producing the most lopsided victory in the history of this 56-game series. Both of the previous marks came in 2010 when Ohio State beat Purdue 49-0. Miller was 19 of 23 despite not playing in the second half.
BEST OF MAXIM
Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller rolled out to the far side of the field and was looking for a wide receiver to throw to. When he couldn’t find one that was open, he started to scramble and at the last second, he flipped the ball to his wide receiver who was wide open in the end zone. Plays like these show why Miller is such a dangerous football player.
Purdue coach Darrell Hazell expected more than this Saturday.
He watched freshman quarterback, Danny Etling, get beaten up again. He saw the running game stopped cold again. He saw a defense repeatedly out of position.
The predictable result - more dubious records.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer and junior quarterback Braxton Miller speak with the media following the Buckeyes' 56-0 win against Purdue at Ross-Ade Stadium on Saturday.
The Buckeyes rolled along to their 21st consecutive victory Saturday afternoon with a dominant 56-0 victory over the Purdue Boilermakers.
The rout started on the first pass of the game from Purdue QB Danny Ettling- a pass Doran Grant caught and returned for Ohio State’s first “pick six” of the season.
From that point on, there was no stopping the Buckeyes.

Exchanges are some of the most fundamental actions in football. Center to quarterback. Quarterback to running back. If a team struggles to execute these simple things, then it is highly likely that team will not be successful.

Please note the helpfully added arrow. This is the current half time score for my alma mater. Purdue is getting destroyed in an incredibly embarrassing fashion. Also, please note that this game is at home. They are losing 42-0 at home. At halftime.

Adds details, quotes. Will stand. With AP Photos. By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer Urban Meyer doesn't need any reminders about what it feels like to lose.
He also has no intention of discussing it with his players. At this point, there's really no need.
