It seems fitting that Ohio State is facing Purdue, on the road, during the week of Halloween. Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette, Ind., after all, has been a House of Buckeye Horrors over the past few years; a structure where Ohio State teams go to see their seasons die on the grass field.
Is there anything to this? How could a program like Ohio State lose so frequently to a program like Purdue? And even when they win, it's not pretty. Urban Meyer has won 20 straight games to start his career at the helm of the Scarlet and Gray, and the closest he's come to a loss in that time was at home last season to the Boilermakers.
To make sense of all this, and to preview this weekend's contest, we talk to Brian Neubert of GoldandBlack.com.
