SOUTH BEND -- We're through a quarter here, and we're right where began: 0-0.
Notre Dame got close enough to try a 40-yard Kyle Brindza field goal, but he missed it with 1:44 to play in the quarter. Purdue, meanwhile, rode Caleb TerBush's arm and legs to the Irish 36 on its deepest penetration.
Good news for Purdue: Their defensive front is beating the Irish O-line, sacking Everett Golson twice and decking him a couple other times as he let the ball go. So the Boilers have that going for them.
On the other hand, they can't run the football at all against Notre Dame's down seven. Which is why it's 0-0.
