Shootout! Purdue's David Bell, Rutgers' Aron Cruickshank trade big plays for TDs
This Rutgers-Purdue game has been absolutely everything today, especially in the second half. Purdue was up 23-13 going into the second half but now they’re only up 30-27 thanks to three touchdowns in the third quarter.
After Kay’Ron Adams scored to make it 23-20, Purdue answered right back with a touchdown to make it 30-20. Receiver David Bell had this outstanding catch on a 50-50 ball as seen here:
50-50 balls belong to Bell.

On the ensuing kickoff, former Wisconsin Badger Aron Cruickshank ran it all the way back for the Scarlet Knights to make it a three-point game again. Here’s the video of it:

Purdue was able to get the ball back but didn’t make anything out of it before Rutgers took their first lead of the game. They lead 34-30 now after Aaron Young ran the ball in from the one-yard-line.
