Purdue is having a tough time staying healthy this season. The game on Saturday against Nebraska was another indication of that.

According to Boilermakers coach Jeff Brohm, after the game, he said that backup quarterback Jack Plummer would probably be out for the remainder of the season. This comes after the team has been without its starting QB, Elijah Sindelar, since the end of November.

Despite all that, Purdue beat Nebraska 31-27. It is now 3-6 on the season. It needs to win its final three games in order to become bowl eligible.

After the win over the Huskers, Brohm also talked about the game-winning reverse play he called as well as wanting his team to be more loose throughout the contest:

Bell took a reverse from the team’s third-string quarterback after he faked giving it to the running back. It took Nebraska by complete surprise and ended up being the game-winning touchdown.

Clearly, Brohm’s group was allowed to play through mistakes. Purdue made some.

But in the end, the Boilermakers won. Third-string quarterback and all.
