Indiana wins shootout with Purdue
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Tre Roberson threw a career-high six touchdown passes, three to Shane Wynn, and the Hoosiers recaptured the Old Oaken Bucket on Saturday for the first time in three years with a 56-36 win over Purdue.
The Hoosiers (5-7, 3-5) finished the season the same way they started -- with a record-setting performance against an in-state foe. They produced their highest point total in the 116-game series and won by 20 or more points for only the seventh time in series history. Plus, the Hoosiers broke the school record for points in a season (463) and extended the school's single-season marks for total TDs (62) and TD passes (36).
Purdue (1-11, 0-8) has now lost 10 straight, the second longest skid in school history. It lost 11 straight from 1906-08.
Indiana took an early 14-0 edge, led 35-9 at halftime and never gave the Boilers a chance to come back.
