On what felt like the hottest day ever at Ross Ade Stadium, the Purdue Boilermakers defeated the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders 27-24. In a contest that seemed like Purdue tried to lose on countless occasions, quarterback Caleb TerBush stepped up late and got the win for the "Old Gold and Black."
While this win did nothing to make the Purdue faithful see promises of a Rose Bowl bid, a win is a win and nobody can dispute that. While the team had some bright spots, there is still much to be worked through in the coming weeks to prepare for Big Ten play.
Should Purdue want to go bowling this year, I have a few things to focus on doing and a few things to focus on fixing.
