Wipe out! Tom Allen takes hard tumble after sideline collision during Old Oaken Bucket game
Indiana secured its eighth win of the season and the Old Oak Bucket, but it wasn’t all fun and games for Tom Allen!
On the field, the action was fierce with Purdue battling back from a second-half deficit. Thankfully, the Hoosiers were able to stand tall and capture the win with a touchdown in double overtime.
During the game, the head coach of the Hoosiers was involved in one hard tumble on the sidelines. Allen should know by now that you have to keep your head on a swivel that close to the action, but he was not fast enough to dodge one Purdue player.
Thankfully, Allen bounced up good to go, but he hit the deck HARD:

Even if that fall hurt as much as it looks like, you have to think winning eight games at Indiana for the first time since 1993 helps ease the pain a bit.
