Robert Marve is 5 for 6 for 28 yards in his Purdue debut, but he also has an interception as the Boilermakers trail 7-0 after the first quarter at Notre Dame.
Dan Dierking got the start at running back for Purdue.
The Boilermakers also came out in a nickel defense. Freshman cornerback Ricardo Allen, redshirt freshman Brandon Taylor, cornerback Mike Eargle and sophomore safety Chris Quinn started. None of those were listed as projected starters on the depth chart.
