Drew Brees loves it as Purdue wrecks Michigan State’s perfect season

·1 min read

All it takes to bring the best out of Purdue is to put it up against a top-five team.

Call them the Spoilermakers rather than the Boilermakers after Purdue upset Michigan State, 40-29, in West Lafayette, Indiana.

The Spartans were ranked third in the first College Football Playoff rankings. They had no answer for quarterback Aidan O’Connell, who went 40-of-54 for 536 passing yards and 3 touchdowns.

David Bell caught 11 passes for 217 yards and a touchdown.

Another Boilermaker with the initials DB enjoyed the upset.

The victory was the 17th over a top-five school, the most in FBS, for Purdue.

Three weeks ago, the Boilermarkers knocked off then-highly ranked Iowa in a road stunner.
