Yesterday was the second rough game in a row inside of Ross Ade Stadium. I must be the eternal optimist because once again I came to the game ready to see a win. Things started off great with a touchdown in 38 seconds for the Boilers. A crisp deep ball led to an easy score. I thought that this was the turning point. When Wisconsin scored to tie it nearly as quickly I thought we would see a shootout. Little did I know that the score would be the first of 38 unanswered points by the Badgers. Akeem Hunt scored on a nice run late to bookend the day, but the 38-14 score pretty much shows you how badly Purdue was beaten on the day. Luckily we had tickets in the WLFI suite so the rain that soaked most fans did not get to us. The stands never seemed too packed from the start, but the play combined with the rain made us feel like we were at an exclusive event for most of the second half. The Boilers have a tough game in Columbus next week, and do not return home until the first week of November. It will be interesting to see how the fans respond when Penn State comes to town. Enough ranting. Here are some of the pictures that I liked from the game this weekend:

Somewhere in the pile is Caleb TerBush scoring for Purdue 38 seconds into the game

As the halftime highlights are posted on the jumbotron the rain really starts to come down

Akeem Hunt bookends the day with this speedy run down the sidelines for six

The student section really emptied out after ‘Shout’. Here some of the fans who stayed watch the final minutes tick away

I have always wanted a picture of this end zone with nobody in it

Thankfully the scoreboard was off when I took this picture

  1. Cool photos. I enjoy seeing your CF photos. I went to a Purdue game two years ago when they played Notre Dame at home. I wanted to catch a Big Ten game. Being an Ole Miss (SEC) I’d never attended a Big Ten game. Nice campus. I was also surprised that Notre Dame didnt bring a band, not even a pep band.
