BOILERMAKERS TAKE DOWN HAWKEYES

The pressure, Purdue coach Jeff Brohm said, was all on No. 2 Iowa.

The Hawkeyes started the season with six consecutive wins and the program had ascended to its highest ranking since 1985.

The Boilermakers connected, just as they’ve been doing against the Hawkeyes in recent seasons.

Aidan O’Connell threw for 374 yards and accounted for three touchdowns, David Bell had a career-best 240 yards receiving, and Purdue continued its recent mastery over Iowa with a 24-7 upset.

The Boilermakers have won four of their last five games against the Hawkeyes. The loss ended Iowa’s 12-game winning streak, including nine consecutive in Big Ten play.

COWBOYS TACKLE LONGHORNS

Facing a big early deficit on the road at Texas, Oklahoma State leaned on the two things that had kept the Cowboys undefeated so far: defense and a punishing run game that could grind out the final quarter.

Eventually the Longhorns folded. Again.

Tanner Brown’s fourth field goal of the game gave the No. 12 Cowboys their first lead in the fourth quarter, and quarterback Spencer Sanders’ scrambling 10-yard touchdown run with 2:18 to play sealed a 32-24 victory as No. 25 Texas collapsed for the second consecutive game.

Brown’s kicking and Jason Taylor II’s 85-yard interception return for a touchdown kept Oklahoma State in the game early. Tanner McAlister’s interception with less than 2 minutes left ensured Oklahoma’s third consecutive win over a ranked opponent, the first time that’s happened in school history.
