Purdue had not won a road game against a non-Power 5 team since winning at Toledo to start the 2007 season. That was so long ago Joe Tiller was still coaching. We saw a litany of losses to non-power 5 programs in that time to Rice, Cincinnati, Marshall, and Nevada, but that streak is now over.
Getting a comfortable road win is always good. Getting a road shutout is rare, as Purdue had not done that in 40 years. I know it is UConn, and because of that we can only take so much from this win, but we’re Purdue fans. Blowing out pretty much ANY FBS level team like this, especially on the road, is cause for at least a modicum of celebration, and that is what In Tweets is here for. It is not our best form of the column because it was a dull second half, but we’ll take it.
"Just don't fuck this up" is the official motto anyway. https://t.co/TqAkzfAyDL— Hammer and Rails (@HammerAndRails) September 11, 2021

David Bell against actual college football teams is unfair enough. He shouldn't be allowed to play against someone like UConn.— Derek Schultz (@Schultz975) September 11, 2021
Just remember… David Bell wasn’t named a top-100 player in the preseason by ESPN.— Chris Forman (@Forman) September 11, 2021

My daughter, who is 15, just asked how long it had been since Purdue beat a D1 team this badly. Syracuse was 2 years before she was born!— Craig Yoder (@Cadamyo) September 11, 2021
UConn's so bad they're stealing the thunder of Purdue's 49-0 shutout! pic.twitter.com/p2D1Wt20wa— RedditCFB (@RedditCFB) September 11, 2021
