Offensive output

Purdue coach Danny Hope discussed his team's offense heading into Saturday's game against Ohio State.

"I believe we can manufacture a good passing game," Hope said. "We went down field more in the game this past weekend against Wisconsin. The very first play of the game was a deep ball that we hit to (wide receiver Antavian) Edison, and he caught it and took it down to the one-foot line. Then we took four or five more shots down the field and had adequate protection, but didn't connect on some of our deeper routes.

"Obviously, when you go against a big, strong defensive front, you're going to have to throw the ball some. We need to score points. Ohio State scores a lot of points, so the deep ball would have to be part of the plan."
