Purdue rolls past Missouri

Purdue hits the road for matchup against SEC foe Missouri

Purdue hits the road for matchup against SEC foe Missouri

"David played very well". Brohm has certainly changed the perception of Boilermaker football already in a big way, and he is only three weeks into his first season at Purdue. "Made plays, made some plays with his feet, didn't turn the ball over".

As usual, Purdue used a two-quarterback system, and both played well. Blough's strong showing in last week's victory over OH earned him the start at Missouri.

Leading Purdue in passing, David Blough finished with 185 passing yards, a rushing, and a passing touchdown.

Missouri (1-2) surrendered 477 yards of offense just six days after firing defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross.

Nine Purdue players had at least one rush, with Tario Fuller carrying 19 times for 90 yards and a touchdown.

Purdue dominated Missouri 35-3 on Saturday, the fewest points the Boilermakers have given up since a shutout of Southeast Missouri State in 2011.

Missouri quarterback Drew Lock completed 12 of 28 passes for 133 yards and two interceptions.

"They played hard, they played to win", Brohm said. "Because of that, they didn't earn a lot. For 60 minutes, we covered down, we didn't give up anything cheap".

After a poor performance last weekend against SC, the explosive Missouri offense from week one was again nowhere to be found, as the Tigers were unable to muster a single touchdown on the day. Elijah Sindelar completed 4 of 6 passes for 85 yards and one touchdown. The Boilermakers held him to 19 yards on 10 carries.

Head coach Barry Odom said he felt confident, too. "It didn't matter much what back was in there".

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.

In the fourth quarter, when MU finally appeared ready to score a touchdown, Purdue cornerback Kamal Hardy ripped the ball out of wide receiver J'Mon Moore's hands in the end zone for an interception.

Beisel thought the defense had run more smoothly and more effectively in the past week and that the team would be well equipped to take on Saturday's challenge.

By all accounts, it had been a good week of practice.

Purdue (2-1) drove 75 yards in 11 plays on its opening drive, setting the pace of a one-sided offensive clinic.

Mizzou: Punter Corey Fatony was terrific with two punts downed inside the 5.

Odom conducted a fiery, lectern-smacking press conference after last week's 31-13 loss to SC. The defense struggled again against Purdue, and afterward Odom was somber and subdued.

"You can't be ideal in this game, but we've got to come back tomorrow and watch the film and not let things snowball", Lock said.
