SOUTH BEND -- Halftime, and still nothing's decided.
It's 7-7 here, and this is what we know: Purdue's a lot better up front, on both sides of the football, than Notre Dame thought it was going to be. The Boilers haven't been able to run the football, but neither has Notre Dame, despite all the talk about how much bigger, stronger and more accomplished the Irish O-line was.
Something else we know: Everett Golson's pretty good.
At halftime he's 11 of 15 for 189 yards and has accounted for 196 of ND's 207 total yards. His 3-yard run ended Notre Dame's only scoring drive, a 10-play, 88-yard excursion in the second quarter.
On the other side, it's easier to see now why Danny Hope is conflicted about his quarterback situation. Caleb TerBush was 6 of 11 for 52 yards and ran for 26 more yards; Robert Marve, who played the second quarter, was 6 of 10 for 53 yards and the touchdown to Antavian Edison, and made at least three throws that TerBush likely couldn't have made.
So expect to see the two-headed monster continue to roam the earth for Purdue in the second half.
