Keys to the game

Purdue became bowl eligible for the first time since 2007, defeating Indiana 33-25 at Memorial Stadium. Carson Wiggs made four field goals.

Here are the highlights.

Key play: Raheem Mostert returned a kick 81 yards to Indiana's 8 in the second quarter. Ralph Bolden scored on an 8-yard run on the next play on the way to tying the game at 17. Wiggs made two field goals to close out the half to give the Boilermakers a 26-17 halftime lead.

Key number: 100. Akeem Hunt rushed for 100 yards. He had a 50-yard run, setting up a 5-yard touchdown run by Antavian Edison. Hunt took charge after Ralph Bolden went out with an injury in the third quarter.

Bowl hopes: A representative from the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl was among those in attendance at the game.

Quotable:

"We can still be champions, and that is a big step for our football program. To have a successful season, to get the Bucket back to West Lafayette, and to get into the postseason play and to win that bowl game so that we can be champions. That's one of our three goals."

- Purdue coach Danny Hope
