WATCH: D.J. Knox scampers 45 yards for clutch, go-ahead TD run
Purdue is trying to hold on for its first win of the season, but D.J. Knox did his part by giving the Boilermakers the lead.
The Boilermakers were trailing Eastern Michigan 17-12 in the fourth quarter and in need of a spark. This time, Knox provided the spark in a big way.
Purdue’s offensive line did its job in opening up a huge hole up front. Knox took care of the rest, bursting through the hole and going the distance without being touched. He showed impressive speed as he went 45 yards for the go-ahead score to put Purdue up 19-17.

Keep the flag in your pocket, refs.
