If Saturday’s scrimmage is an accurate indication, Purdue men’s basketball fans may be in for a surprise during the 2014-15 season.
Purdue has made great strides in turning around its football program. But the Boilermakers were given a painful reminder on Saturday that there’s still room to improve.
MINNEAPOLIS — David Cobb rushed for 194 yards and a touchdown and Ryan Santoso kicked a 52-yard field goal with 4:59 left to cap Minnesota's comeback on Saturday, giving the Gophers a 39-38 victory over Purdue and their first 3-0 start in Big Ten play since 1990.
