Keys to the win

Indiana ended a disappointing season on a positive note, knocking off Purdue 34-31 in overtime Saturday at Ross-Ade Stadium.

Here are some of the highlights.

Key number: 1. Indiana surrendered one sack in the win. Purdue entered the game leading the Big Ten in sacks. The battle up front was a key entering the contest. With time to throw, quarterback Ben Chappell passed for 330 yards and three touchdowns in his final game at IU.

Key (non-scoring) play: Has to be the overtime interception by Jeff Thomas, which ended Purdue’s only possession in overtime. Four plays later, Mitch Ewald made a 31-yard field goal to set off a wild celebration and give the Hoosiers their first win in the Bucket game since 2007.

Indiana Quotable

“I’ve done it a million times. So much credit goes to my snapper and holder. They’ve done a great job all season long.”
