The Ohio State offense is finally blossoming into its fullest form, and the rest of the college football world is taking notice.
The Buckeyes exploded for 59 points against a good Purdue defense on Saturday night in Columbus.
Quarterback C.J. Stroud had a monster performance. The rising star completed 31 of his 38 pass attempts for 361 yards and five touchdowns. Garrett Wilson caught 10 passes for 126 yards and three scores. TreVeyon Henderson and Miyan Williams combined for over 200 yards rushing.
The Ohio State offense is starting to fire on all cylinders. The rest of the college football world should be very scared.

Ohio State #Buckeyes Offense destroys Purdue! They’ll have a big matchup next week with MSU coming to the Shoe next Saturday! They will have to tighten up their defense the next couple weeks, as they continue to stride towards the College Football Playoff https://t.co/X4wcmUoNsE

The Buckeyes may not have an elite defense, but that won’t matter much thanks to their offense.
Ohio State scored 59 points and had 624 yards of total offense against a respectable Purdue defense. That’ll do.
The Buckeyes should stay in the top four of the College Football Playoff rankings next week. And they might have a chance to move up if Oregon falls to Washington State late Saturday night.
No. 4 Ohio State hosts No. 7 Michigan State in Columbus next Saturday.
