Ohio State remained undefeated Saturday by rallying to defeat Purdue, 29-22, in overtime but the victory was marred by an injury to star quarterback Braxton Miller.
Miller suffered an apparent head injury after being tackled in the third quarter and was taken to a local hospital for observation. Miller entered the game as a Heisman Trophy candidate who had amassed 2,183 passing and rushing yards entering Saturday's game.
Backup Kenny Guiton replaced Miller and rallied Ohio State in regulation, throwing a touchdown pass with three seconds remaining to cut the lead to two. The Buckeyes converted the two-point conversion to send the game into overtime.
Ohio State (8-0) remains the Big Ten's only undefeated team but is ineligible for the Big Ten title this year because of NCAA probation.
