The 2019 college football season is just two weeks old, but already, Elijah Sindelar has carved out a spot in Purdue history with huge performances in back-to-back weeks.
Sindelar has thrown for over 400 yards in each of Purdue’s first two games this season, becoming just the third quarterback in Boilermakers history to hit that mark in back-to-back contests. The other two? Drew Brees and Jim Everett.
Elite company, wouldn’t you say? That statistic comes from BTN Stats Guys, who tweeted it out following Purdue’s 42-24 win over Vanderbilt in the home opener.

Sindelar threw for 509 yards and five touchdowns on 34-of-52 pass attempts in the victory. In the season opener against Fresno State, he had 423 yards and four touchdown passes.
Through two games, Sindelar leads the B1G in both passing yardage (932) and touchdown passes (9). Sindelar will try to keep his 400-yard passing streak intact next Saturday when Purdue hosts TCU.
