Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller suffered a head injury in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game against Purdue. Reports indicated an ambulance was called to take Miller, a Heisman Trophy candidate, to the OSU Medical Center.

Buckeye fans attending the game began tweeting “season over” as Miller was taken off the field on a backboard.

Miller has produced about 70 percent of Ohio State’s offense, and was instrumental in OSU’s 63-38 romp over Nebraska.

Ohio State’s remaining games are at Penn State, Illinois, at Wisconsin and Michigan.
