Purdue upsets No. 7 Ohio State

BY foxsports • October 17, 2009

Former Purdue quarterback Drew Brees had a simple message for current Boilermakers signal caller Joey Elliott.

"Drew Brees texted me last night and said: 'Hey, go out there and shock the world, have fun. I'll be watching."'

Elliott did as he was told and led Purdue to its biggest upset in years. He threw for 281 yards and two touchdowns, and the Boilermakers stunned No. 7 Ohio State 26-18 on Saturday.

It was another ugly day for the Buckeyes' offense. But unlike last week when the defense and special teams provided enough points for Ohio State (5-2, 3-1 Big Ten) to beat Wisconsin, the struggles of quarterback Terrelle Pryor and Co. were too much for the Buckeyes to overcome.
