Indiana rallies past Purdue 23-16 to keep Bucket

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) Indiana quarterback Zander Diamont scored on a 1-yard TD run with 27 seconds left Saturday, giving Indiana a 23-16 victory over rival Purdue. The Hoosiers (4-8, 1-7 Big Ten) snapped a six-game losing streak and held onto the Old Oaken Bucket for the second straight year -- the first time they've done that since 1993 and 1994. Tevin Coleman ran 29 times for...

Badgers report card: Passing game comes alive against Boilermakers

No one will ever suggest losing the Big Ten opener to Northwestern did Wisconsin some good back in early October. The loss essentially ended whatever small talk remained of the Badgers competing for the College Football Playoff and raised serious questions about whether this team could even compete in the Big Ten West. But a shift has gradually taken place since the loss, and now...

Gophers report card: Significant rally against Purdue

MINNEAPOLIS -- Whatever works. Minnesota, favored to win at home by 14, narrowly edged Purdue by a 39-38 final in one of the crazier games in recent Gophers memory. In doing so, Minnesota now sits alone in first place in the Big Ten West and is 3-0 in the conference. There were defensive lapses Saturday against the Boilermakers, but Minnesota recovered just in time to rally and hold...

Minnesota gets defensive late, moves to 3-0 in Big Ten

MINNEAPOLIS -- It's a stat that Minnesota's players certainly weren't aware of. Neither was head coach Jerry Kill. Under Kill, the Gophers were 0-22 when trailing at halftime, like they were Saturday to visiting Purdue. What happened in the second half at TCF Bank Stadium was as good a testament as anything as to just how far this program has come in Kill's four seasons. Despite...

The Minny Predicto – Gopher It!

The last time Purdue and Minnesota got together was also in the house that Glen Mason built up in Minny. (Incidentally, I’ve been referring to Ross-Ade for a while as now being the smallest venue in the Big Ten outside of Ryan Field, but that’s no longer true. Our new members play in smaller locales and TCF Bank Stadium is also smaller, holding a tidy 52,525.) It was also essentially...

Purdue's offense rallies, but can't top Spartans

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) One costly mistake ruined Purdue's big chance. On a day the team rushed for 162 yards and three touchdowns against the nation's fourth-stingiest run defense, and quarterback Austin Appleby led the Boilermakers back from two double-digit deficits, they still came up short. Michigan State's Connor Cook threw three touchdown passes, Nick Hill ran for two more...

Michigan State survives upset scare, beats Boilermakers 45-31

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Connor Cook threw three touchdown passes, Nick Hill ran for two scores and a late interception return for a touchdown allowed No. 8 Michigan State to hold off Purdue 45-31 Saturday. Purdue's defense just couldn't stop Michigan State, which amassed 532 total yards. It looked like the Spartans had taken control with a 38-17 lead with two TDs in the third quarter...

(AP) Purdue gashed Illinois for 349 yards rushing and first-time starting quarterback Austin Appleby threw for a touchdown and ran for two more to lead Purdue to a 38-27 upset on Saturday at Illinois.

Illinois hopes to extend Purdue's struggles

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Illinois coach Tim Beckman was asked this week if Saturday's game against Purdue is a must win. ''Every game's a must win,'' Beckman said before quickly moving on. This one, though, may be more so than most for the Illini (3-2, 0-1 Big Ten). The Boilermakers (2-3, 0-1) are probably the most clearly beatable opponent still on the schedule for the Illini. Get...

Iowahhh – The Predicto

Don’t be a boob, read the predicto. It’s homecoming weekend at Purdue and as we all know, the best idea for homecoming is to schedule a patsy you can push around. Minnesota used to always seem to be a favorite in the ‘90s, but they’ve been replaced by Purdue’s previously-mandated most hated rival, the Iowa Hawkeyes Who Wish They Were The Steelers. In a strange twist, Purdue...

Opening win has Purdue looking to build confidence

Purdue coach Darrell Hazell detected a big difference in his players' demeanor during their season-opening win. He noticed it again throughout this week's practices. Now comes the hard part: Taking advantage of that new, more confident attitude and turning it into more wins. ''I think the validation is good for the players, because they need to know what they're doing is the right...

#WEWANTBAMA: Purdue beats a real football team!

Swamy’s Internal Monologue: Hmmm…the guys asked me to take this post-game. Should I talk about how mediocre we looked? Should I remain realistic, and talk about how shaky Etling looked in his second year starting? Should I be concerned that our entire strategy revolves around the extraordinary abilities of Mostert and Hunt, while no other aspect of the team looks even average...

Boilermakers looking for fresh start in 2014

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Darrell Hazell is tired of reliving the past. After months of poring through game tapes to figure out what went wrong in 2013, the second-year Purdue coach came to this conclusion: It's time for everyone to forget about the last season and focus on the future. ''I think this is the time where you rip off the rearview mirror and you take a look at what's in front...

Big Ten Breakdown: Purdue Boilermakers Full Preview

Purdue head coach Darrell Hazell's first year in West Lafayette yielded decidedly unimpressive results. The Boilers went 1-11 overall, were winless in conference, and ranked 121st in terms of both national scoring offense and scoring offense. The defense was only minimally better, ranking 113th in scoring defense and 116th in total defense.It is evident that Hazell is taking...

No. 108 Purdue Boilermakers season preview

It was a year of sorrow in West Lafayette as the Boilermakers failed to win a single Big Ten Conference game.

Getting to know Purdue football commit Cedric Dale

Cedric Dale is a 5’8″ cornerback that has committed to play his college football at Purdue. The Boilermakers were able to get him to flip his commitment to them from BYU, and are very excited to bring him on board. He is rated as a two-star prospect, but does have great ability and quickness in the secondary. Purdue needs secondary help so he will be a very nice pickup. Dale...
