Purdue came out strong and scored a field goal on their first drive. The Boilermaker defense then did their best impression of a sieve and gave up 34 points in a row. Meanwhile, the starting quarterback, Robert Marve acted like he only practiced the first drive all week and was replaced in the third quarter. The Boilers then scored against the 4th string defense to make the score a little less lopsided. Coach Danny Hope (underlined for potential future games) acted like he's never won a Big Ten game and Offensive Coordinator Gary Nord remained defiant in his superiority over all offensive minds in college football. Somehow, these guys have been so bad that Defensive Coordinator Tim Tibesar and his 2-down CFL defense goes yet another week without getting the majority of the blame. Purdue has now lost 5 straight games.
Since I know nobody else wants to read any of this, I thought you might prefer to see a whole bunch of humorous/depressing screenshots that often happen when you have a real network filming a really boring game...

|No caption needed. Although, notice the lady in the upper right? She is forming the "F" in the F-bomb that she's about to drop. Seriously, if you have a recording of the game, check it out.
|"Ahh!!! My eyes!!! I can't watch this anymore! What's that weird shadow behind me?"
|"Football? Penn State? I thought actual lions were going to be here. Hopefully the guy next to me with the fake hair doesn't see my rifle..."
|The empty 3rd quarter stare we've become so familiar with.
|I'm pretty sure part of Penn State's sanctions include "no video of naked people and the football team in the same shot."
|This is the "Paper Bag" treatment from a 3-year-old.
|"Hey, nice job Caleb - we beat them in plays! Plus, there are more people here than there were at this point of the Wisconsin game! Progress!"
|"Lord, thank you for letting us score a touchdown. But why won't you let us kick the extra point?? We haven't had a single kick blocked this week and I haven't suffered enough!"
