THE BACK: Ohio State's Rex Kern earned a few more Buckeye leaves for his helmet in Ohio State's 42-14 win over Purdue. The junior quarterback ran for 57 yards, passed for 104 more and accounted for three touchdowns.

THE LINEMAN: Kern's teammate, Jack Tatum, often called the most gifted athlete on a remarkably gifted team, led the crew that made Purdue boil. Tatum, a 6', 204-pound junior, made eight tackles, helped stop Mike Phipps.
