COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Critical areas for the Buckeyes as they hit the midway point of the Big Ten season with a visit from Purdue on Saturday (TV: ABC, noon).

FIRST DOWN
Perfect imbalance: The offense clearly isn't broke, so there's no need for Ohio State to fix anything with Purdue coming to town. Maybe the Buckeyes would like to show off some improvement in the passing attack and even up the balance with the running game, but there's really no need to bother.
