Video: Akeem Hunt takes opening kick to the house
It took all of 14 seconds for Purdue to match its Week 1 one scoring total Saturday. Darrell Hazell went with trickeration on the opening kickoff, and speedy Akeem Hunt took the reverse 90 yards to the end zone. And just like that, without one offensive possession, the Boilermakers led Indiana State, 7-0. Purdue, of course, lost 42-7 to Cincinnati in last week’s opener.
Last week’s offensive performance might have been worse than the score indicated. Quarterback Rob Henry was so disappointed in his play that he went to Twitter to voice his frustration.
