It all came down to a field goal again at Ross-Ade Stadium. Instead of Eastern Michigan’s Chad Ryland of Missouri’s Tucker McCann knocking it through the uprights it was our own Spencer Evans that knocked home the game winner. After a fun Saturday in West Lafayette let’s look at the game via Twitter.

Oh good someone plugged the Purdue offense controller back in.— Boiled Sports (@BoiledSports) November 3, 2018
.@HammerAndRails For the record, that opening TD drive is the first one Iowa has allowed ALL season so far.— JonRolfes (@jon_rolfes) November 3, 2018
Zico is having a very Mahoungu-esque season. Love to see it.— The Rail Report (@therailreport) November 3, 2018
Is it any good? Lol— JonRolfes (@jon_rolfes) November 3, 2018
Oh no, we’re gonna have to change the twitter password on you again aren’t we? https://t.co/fiBKRDngOz— Jumbo Heroes (@jumboheroes) November 3, 2018
Super late call without any way to get out of the halo. What a garbage call— Michael Lewis (@Michael_Robert) November 3, 2018

Why are you denying my right as a Purdue fan to think something terrible will happen when things are going well?— Anthony Rufatto (@1F2Ts) November 3, 2018
Are you unfamiliar with Purdue athletic history?
This game has officially pissed me off— Jimboslice (@sandbergfan88) November 3, 2018
#Purdue's Derrick Barnes just gave up a 17-yard pass completion for a first down, nearly got called for a horse collar, then stood up and ... celebrated? Hope I saw that wrong.— Nathan Baird (@nbairdjc) November 3, 2018
He hits this, I say we all pitch in for a new tattoo for him...— JonRolfes (@jon_rolfes) November 3, 2018
Spencer Evans split 'em. #Purdue 38-36, 0:08 left.— Nathan Baird (@nbairdjc) November 3, 2018
So if Iowa had kicked the PAT then kicked the other PAT, that field goal only would have tied the game.
Math always wins.
I will now get a tattoo of Spencer Evans getting all of his tattoos to celebrate.— Tyler Trent Fan Account (@Holmes_y_Rails) November 3, 2018
I think it’s the strobe lights...— David Alspach (@1cooljeep) November 3, 2018

How about you kick an extra point instead of going for two, Kirk?— Fake Fake Frank Reich (@fakedavetoub18) November 4, 2018
