IU suffers worst loss to Purdue in more than a century

Freshman wide receiver Tandon Doss misses a pass into the endzone during the first half of Indiana's game against Purdue Saturday in West Lafayette, IN.  The Hoosiers lost 62-10.

With more than nine seconds remaining the game, IU made its first defensive stop of the day.

In the 84th annual battle for the Old Oaken Bucket, IU was dominated in every facet of football en route to a 62-10 pounding.

The Hoosiers managed just 214 total yards as their defense let up 596.

Purdue quarterback Curtis Painter had a career day throwing against the Hoosier secondary as the senior completed 38 of his 54 passing attempts for 448 yards and five touchdowns.

On the ground, Boilermaker Kory Sheets carried the ball 15 times and scored three.

The Hoosiers’ lone touchdown of the game came at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Quarterback Kellen Lewis connected with wide receiver Ray Fisher for a 16-yard pass.

The loss was the Hoosiers’ worst to the Boilermakers since losing 64-0 in 1893.
