WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- Jordan Canzeri ran for a career-high
165 yards on 20 carries to help the Iowa Hawkeyes defeat the
Purdue Boilermakers 38-14 on Saturday afternoon.
Canzeri, a sophomore who entered the game with 173 yards rushing
all season, also scored a touchdown to help the Hawkeyes become
bowl eligible. Jake Rudock passed for 191 yards and two
touchdowns for Iowa (6-4, 3-3 Big Ten), which set season highs
for total yards (509) and yards rushing (318).
Danny Etling completed 15 of 28 passes for 145 yards for Purdue
(1-8, 0-5), which has lost seven straight and has not beaten a
Football Bowl Subdivision team this year. The Boilermakers have
scored 31 points in five Big Ten games, with two of the
touchdowns coming in the final minute of play.
Early in the second quarter, Rudock found Don Shumpert down the
middle of the field for 34 yards to move the Hawkeyes into
Purdue territory. Eventually, Canzeri scored from the 2 to give
Iowa a 7-0 lead. The touchdown capped a 90-yard drive that
included a third-and-1 conversion by Mark Weisman to move the
Hawkeyes to the Purdue 2-yard line.
Purdue caught its first break in a long time when Iowa's Kevonte
Martin-Manley fumbled a punt and Purdue's Armstead Williams
recovered at the Iowa 35.
Purdue, which had been shut out its previous two games, finally
scored in the second quarter. Etling connected with Hunt for a
26-yard screen pass on third-and-6 to set up the Boilermakers at
the Iowa 5-yard line. On third down, Etling found Kurt Freytag
for a 2-yard touchdown pass. The extra point tied the score with
5:44 left in the second quarter.
Martin-Manley made up for his fumble with a 22-yard touchdown
catch from Rudock that gave Iowa a 14-7 lead with 1:57 left in
the second quarter.
Iowa gained 250 yards in the first half, yet led just 14-7. The
Hawkeyes were hampered by bad field position throughout the
half. Canzeri had 75 yards on 10 carries before the break.
On its second possession of the third quarter, the Boilermakers
converted three first downs before Raheem Mostert fumbled and
Iowa's Christian Kirksey recovered at the Iowa 29. The Hawkeyes
took advantage when Weisman barreled in from 4 yards out to push
their lead to 21-7 with 3:43 left in the third. It was an
eight-play, 71-yard drive that included just one pass. The
Hawkeyes controlled the game the rest of the way.
