Unfortunately for Purdue, Blough’s effort wasn’t quite enough, as the Boilermakers fell to Missouri 40-37, losing on a field goal at the end of the game.
Blough becomes the second Purdue player to earn the Rose Bowl Player of the Week honors this year. After Week 1, wide receiver Rondale Moore earned the honor after totaling 313 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns against Northwestern.
Purdue lost that game as well, falling 31-27.
Through three weeks, Blough has completed 70.4 percent of his passes this season with three touchdowns and one interception.
