Purdue is getting pretty good at pulling off dramatic, late-game finishes.

After knocking off Nebraska with a late touchdown by David Bell, the Boilermakers used a big second half against Northwestern to secure the win. The Wildcats scored the first 14 points in the game, but Purdue stormed back in the second half.

Jeff Brohm’s squad used a 17-6 run in the second half to overcome the deficit and pull out a win. It took a game-winning field goal, but it goes down as back-to-back wins as Purdue continues to deal with numerous injuries.

After the win, Brohm praised his group’s grit and perseverance, highlighting that some of his players are even battling through injury:

One of the positions where Purdue is especially banged up is at quarterback. The Boilermakers lost starter Elijah Sindelar earlier in the year and then lost backup Jack Plummer in the game against Nebraska.

That led Aidan O’Connell to start for Purdue. All he did was pull off a second straight game-winning drive for the Boilermakers in dramatic fashion. Needless to say, Brohm knows Saturday’s win had to feel good for O’Connell:

Now at 4-6, Purdue faces tough games against Wisconsin and Indiana in an attempt to get to bowl eligibility. While that may be tough, it’s been an undoubtedly resilient year for the Boilermakers.
