Purdue football posts largest margin of victory in over a decade with win over Indiana State
Purdue football rolled to a big win in Week 2, and the Boilermakers set an impressive margin of victory in the process.
Facing in-state FCS program Indiana State, the offense was expectedly firing on all cylinders. Aidan O’Connell was a near-perfect 17-for-19 throwing the ball for 211 yards and 4 touchdowns before getting pulled.
Charlie Jones was once again O’Connell’s favorite target, hauling in 9 receptions for 133 yards and 3 touchdowns. Jones completed his hat trick in the first half.
When the final horn blew, Purdue walked away with a 56-0 final score, a massive shutout. That performance also included a pick-6 Cam Allen, making it back-to-back games with a pick-6 for the Boilermakers.
That score is also the largest win for Purdue since 2011:
