Ohio State Streamrolls Purdue 56-0

Gregory Shamus/Getty Images(WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.) --  Braxton Miller threw for 233 yards and four touchdowns as fourth-ranked Ohio State crushed Purdue 56-0 at Ross-Ade Stadium.

The Buckeyes (9-0, 5-0 Big 10) kept their national title hopes alive by staying unbeaten and winning their 21st-straight game, good for the longest in the country.  Head coach Urban Meyer hasn't lost a game in 34 1/2 months.

Backup quarterback Kenny Guiton passed for a touchdown as well, while rushing for two more scores.  Five different receivers caught touchdown passes.

Meyer said after the game that the team seemed a bit sluggish in the pregame, but when it was time to go the Buckeyes put their best foot forward.

"It was an early morning, we had to get up early, we had to get prepared, we had to eat well," Miller said. "We had to get the guys going and the coaches talked to us and got us hyped."

Ohio State dominated the game from start to finish, producing the most lopsided win in the history of the 56-game series between the two teams.

Purdue (1-7, 0-4) has now lost six straight games.

I want to thank the Alabama administration for the confidence they have shown in me, and for giving me this opportunity. We leave Texas Tech with heavy hearts. Kelly and I owe our deepest gratitude to so many people in the Red Raider family. We will always be grateful to the Texas Tech fans, the administration, the faculty and, most of all, our players."

Big Ten Conference Undergoes Divisional Realignment

David Dermer/ Diamond Images/ Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  The Big Ten conference underwent more changes this weekend, with the schools approving new East and West divisions for the 2014 season.

The schools' presidents and chancellors voted unanimously to approve the recommendations during a conference call on Sunday morning.

Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, along with new members Maryland and Rutgers will make up the Big Ten East division.

The Big Ten West will include: Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Purdue and Wisconsin.

"We thought the geography was a good way to bind the conference together," Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said. "We also wanted to preserve as much tradition as we could, and we do that through the protection of the rivalries. Everybody will play everybody at least once in a four-year cycle, even though it's a bigger conference."

Each team will also have a nine-game conference schedule beginning in 2016.
