How strange was this game? Purdue had three different spots where normally things would have gone sideways:
- Jalen Graham dropped a near certain 95 yard pick 6.
- Mitchell Fineran missed a short field goal after Iowa had done the same.
- Purdue lost a fumble thanks to the dumbest rule in all of sports.
Through all that, Purdue still not only won, but won by multiple scores. In tweets is always great when Purdue wins. When Purdue beats ranked teams, it is even better. We’re getting used to beating top 5 teams, so that’s even better. Beating a top 5 team on the road? Well, that’s not something that had happened in my life time until yesterday, and I am officially old now after my birthday last week. The win was an excellent birthday gift.
So here is this week’s In Tweets. Everyone savor the flavor as Purdue now leads the Big Ten West.

Purdue drops an easy pick-six then Iowa shanks a 25 yard FG. Welcome to college football in 2021… insanity.— Dub Jellison (@DubJellison) October 16, 2021

It’s the darndest thing to see a Purdue player hurt and hearing Iowa fans cheering him instead of booing. Almost like James Franklin is full of crap?— JP in IC (@JPinIC_BHGP) October 16, 2021
I’d rather take the ACT than watch Iowa try to cover David Bell.— Go Iowa Awesome (@IowaAwesome) October 16, 2021
that Purdue replay seems like yet another good opportunity for penn state fans to start bitching about the Penix Extension again— Off Tackle Empire (@offtackleempire) October 16, 2021
His nickname is now "Jesus David Bell" cause that's what I say almost every time he touches the ball.— Mjolnir and Rails (@Holmes_y_Rails) October 16, 2021
David Bell is making himself some money today— Pat Crone (@croner2110) October 16, 2021
I love how Ferentz chooses to defend Bell every year. Can we get him to advise Fleck?— Todd Singer (@Aahzmadius) October 16, 2021
*Me explaining to my wife that doesn't watch football how this is an upset*— Dr. J ⛅ (@Air_Force_Juan) October 16, 2021
My wife: so does that mean Purdue is a one hit wonder?
God damn, even in a win she has no chill.
In the most badass moment of the game, Purdue offensive lineman Greg Long pours a can of @budlight over his face after a fan tossed the beer onto the field in @BoilerFootball's 24-7 win over No. 2 Iowa today in Iowa City. pic.twitter.com/ymZUxWhP2V— Bryon Houlgrave (@bryonhoulgrave) October 16, 2021

Purdue has 9 wins vs AP Top-2 teams when unranked, the most by any team in the Poll Era. No other team has more than 4 such wins.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) October 16, 2021
Purdue is also the 1st team to win consecutive games by double digits vs AP Top-2 teams when unranked in each contest (beat No. 2 OSU by 29). pic.twitter.com/rPrWFlynK4

I would absolutely shit on my porch if I lost at home to Purdue while ranked No. 2 in the nation and talking an exorbitant amount of nonsense— Treb (@treblaw) October 16, 2021
spent all week -- the entire week -- asserting an injury conspiracy was deployed against them in a win and then they showed up at home with that, lol I would be SICK— Treb (@treblaw) October 17, 2021
