Against Northwestern, Purdue managed to turn a 12 point halftime deficit into a 22 point loss. In other words: Purdue really sucks. Even though they outgained the Wildcats (466-451) quarterback Curtis Painter threw three costly interceptions and Purdue had 5 turnovers all together and 9 penalties didn't help either. Running back Kory Sheets had another big day rushing for 169 yards on only 17 carries.
Next up: The boilermakers take on Minnesota.

Hill disappearing act also continues as he managed just 34 yards rushing.
