Purdue's defense scores 2nd TD in as many games with Jalen Graham's pick-6
That’s another defensive touchdown for Purdue.
Boilermakers safety Jalen Graham was in the perfect spot when Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez threw one right into his hands in the second quarter. He took it to the house to put Purdue on the board and tie the game 7-7.

It’s the second straight game Purdue scored a defensive touchdown. Last week, defensive end George Karlaftis had a scoop-and-score in the Boilermakers’ loss to Wisconsin. In fact, the defense has done most of the scoring for the Boilermakers over the last two games. Purdue hasn’t scored an offensive touchdown since the 2nd quarter of the Wisconsin game.
But the Purdue defense couldn’t hold up on the next drive. Nebraska went 75 yards in 5 plays to re-take the lead, 14-7, with 10:45 left in the first half thanks to a 4-yard touchdown run from Adrian Martinez.
