Purdue erupted for 28 second-quarter points against Marshall on Saturday, thanks in large part to the defense's big-play ability. In the span of 102 seconds, cornerbacks Ricardo Allen and Josh Johnson registered back-to-back interception returns for scores. Allen's Pick 6 marked the fourth of his career, while Johnson's was his first. Watch Allen's latest visit to the end zone now and see Johnson's in this post.
