A blustery day in Evanston was ugly, but it was a win.

Purdue is definitely not going to get points on pretty for this one. Facing a lackluster offense that hadn’t scored a touchdown in more than a month the Purdue defense was quickly gashed for a 79 yard touchdown run. The 14-0 lead after a quarter felt insurmountable, but Aidan O’Connell did just enough. His poise yesterday helped deliver Purdue’s fourth win of the season and the late field goal from J.D. Dellinger was just enough to keep some extremyl faint postseason hopes alive for the Boilermakers.

Oh, and David Bell continues to be an incredibly dangerous weapon no matter who is throwing him the football.

As you will see from this week’s In Tweets, we ran the gamut of emotions from start to finish. Northwestern is not a good team and Purdue is far from great with all the injuries, but after everything Purdue has been through this season I think we’ll take it.
