1st quarter recap: Penn State 10, Purdue 3

Penn State’s secondary stifled the passing game, allowing just 31 yards through the air to Purdue in the first quarter and the Nittany Lions lead 10-3 at the end of the first quarter. The Boilermakers took the game’s first lead after Sam McCartney made a 20-yard field goal on the last play of a seven-play, 49-yard drive. Purdue’s drive was keyed by Akeem Shavers’ 37-yard run. The Boilermakers had to settle for a field goal after failing to reach the endzone from Penn State’s three-yard line. The Nittany Lions got even after Sam Ficken kicked a 27-yard field goal to

Numbers: Crunching stats for title time

November is upon us. It used to be the month when championships were decided. How very 2010. Now, it’s the month when spots in the Championship Game are decided. All in the name of progress… In an odd scheduling quirk, there is just one game in the early window on Saturday – as Minnesota and Michigan battle for the Little Brown Jug in a game you can see on BTN/BTN2Go.

Dienhart: Burke will have to make decision on Hope

Amid unrest about the direction of the football program, which sits at 0-4 in the Big Ten, Purdue A.D. Morgan Burke issued a statement Monday. Here is the full release: “Everyone around our football program has high expectations for the 2012 season. We have worked very hard over the past four years to improve our personnel, facilities and every phase of our program, which is evident. Our student-athletes, alumni, fans, coaching staff and administration all expect to see the program move forward and take a step up the postseason ladder. Currently, our performance has kept us from reaching our goals.
