Boilermakers outlast Sycamores

Interception in final minute seals Hazell's first win at PU.

(Continued)

Purdue’s Paul Griggs missed a 49-yard field goal later in the quarter, one play after miscommunication on a snap cost the Boilermakers 11 yards.

Purdue’s offense finally got on the board with a 10-play drive that ended with an 18-yard field goal by Griggs.

Frankie Williams blocked an Indiana State punt, giving Purdue possession at the Indiana State 27-yard line. Purdue’s Rob Henry connected with Hunt on a screen pass on the first play to take the ball to the Indiana State 1-yard line, but the Boilermakers gained nothing on three straight runs. With no timeouts remaining, Purdue couldn’t get its field-goal team on the field in time, and the Boilermakers had to settle for a 10-0 lead. Purdue ran six plays from the Indiana State 1-yard line in the first half and got three points out of it.

Purdue held the Sycamores to 71 yards and four first downs in the first half.

Knauf took a handoff 16 yards for a touchdown on a sweep, and the Boilermakers took a 17-0 lead with 5:08 left in the third quarter.

Indiana State got on the board on a fourth-and-9. Perish found George Cheeseborough deep down the right sideline to cut Purdue’s lead to 17-7 with 2:44 left in the third quarter.

Griggs made another field goal early in the fourth quarter, a 37-yarder, to give the Boilermakers a 20-7 lead.

Indiana State came right back. Perish completed a 17-yard touchdown pass to Demory Lawshe to cut Purdue’s lead to 20-14 with 9:22 to play. Lawshe caught seven passes for 62 yards.

Indiana State got the ball back with a chance to go for the lead, but the Sycamores were unable to get into scoring range after a lengthy drive and punted.

Indiana State got one more shot, taking over at the Purdue 41 with 46 seconds remaining. On the second play, Allen’s interception sealed the win for the Boilermakers.
