Purdue wide receiver Broc Thompson raked in a prestigious honor after an outstanding performance in the Music City Bowl on Thursday night in Nashville.

Thompson was named the Most Valuable Player of the Music City Bowl after putting up huge numbers in Purdue’s thrilling 48-45 overtime win. With David Bell and Milton Wright both out, Thompson stepped up in a big way.

Thompson ended the game with 217 yards and 2 touchdowns on 7 catches for the Boilermakers, a game-high total. He was on the receiving end of a 75-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter and a 70-yard touchdown toss in the fourth quarter.

Coming into the Music City Bowl, Thompson had 240 yards and 2 touchdowns on 23 catches. He became a more focal part of the offense with two of the top playmakers out for the Boilers.

Thanks to Thompson’s big day, the Boilermakers will finish the year with a 9-4 record, the program’s best season since 2003.
