Purdue 35, Missouri 3: Key moments, players and grades
Sep 17 2017 by Marjorie Miles
The Boilermakers dominated the Tigers 35-3 on Saturday and will head into Big Ten play just one victory short of last season's total.
Purdue appeared stopped on its second possession, but Missouri couldn't recover a fumble and Blough completed a 17-yard pass on a third-and-11 to keep alive a drive that ended with Tario Fuller's 36-yard touchdown run. "I really thought our defensive performance was dominant". Few of us dared hope for a victory, and when Purdue got the ball after the kickoff and by using the revolving wedge and boxing the tackles, assisted by a bad pass, scored six points in ﬁve minutes, it seemed like a walkover. On the season, Blough is completing over 75-percent of his passes for around 10 yards per attempt. The first pick the junior quarterback threw, which came at the 14:24 mark of the second quarter, was destined for Purdue cornerback Markus Bailey the second the ball came out of Lock's hand.
However, Missouri never stood a chance with the way Purdue rolled on both offense and defense.
Missouri's listless performance was best illustrated by one series in the second quarter in which the Tigers committed penalties on four consecutive plays - three false starts and a holding infraction.
Odom conducted a fiery, lectern-smacking press conference after last week's 31-13 loss to SC.
