WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Did the Buckeyes nearly snatch victory out of the jaws of defeat or did they snatch defeat out of what looked to be a miracle victory? Braxton Miller hit Jordan Hall with less than a minute left in the game to tie up a game that the Buckeyes trailed the whole way through regulation only to see a point after try blocked to send the game to overtime.
The Buckeyes couldn't find success during the overtime period and had to settle for a field goal while the Boilermakers bested the Buckeyes with a 1-yard touchdown run by Robert Marve.
Ohio State had controlled its own destiny (by virtue of a Penn State loss) maybe for a matter of seconds and now the loss has the Buckeyes very much upside down in the Big Ten race and a chance of playing Indianapolis now is likely out of reach.
We caught up with Luke Fickell and the team after the game to get their reaction on the gut-wrenching game that saw the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.
