Official Game Program


David Bell continued to wreak havoc against Iowa. He caught 11 passes for 240 yards and 1 TD. It wasn't much different than the two previous games against Iowa (both over 100 yards receiving). His three-year, three-game totals against Iowa: 35 receptions, 558 yards, five touchdowns. Purdue QB Aidan O'Connell went 30-for-40 and 375 yards and 2 TDs.

The Hawks have lost 4 of the last 5 games against Purdue, and this game was never in doubt. The Hawks struggled on offense with 4 turnovers, and only caused 1 turnover. The offense struggled to move the ball, and played from behind most of the day.
