Purdue has its biggest home game of the year right now, hosting undefeated Big Ten superpower Ohio State football.

The Boilermakers opened the scoring late in the first quarter. With 1:10 left in the frame, David Blough found Isaac Zilco for a beautiful touchdown.

Purdue held Ohio State to a field goal on the ensuing drive. Late in the second quarter, it holds on to a 7-3 lead.

Purdue football planned a "black out" for the big game at Ross-Ade Stadium, but Ohio State fans didn't help the cause.

The Boilermakers are wearing all-black during the big prime time game, and most of their fans got the message.

However, there are plenty of Buckeyes faithful in the building, and it takes away from the effect.

There's not much you can do about that. The Buckeyes have one of the best fan bases in college football, and travel extremely well.

That scarlet really pops against the black out too, which doesn't help.

The Buckeyes and Boilermakers game is currently being broadcast on ABC.
