In the second quarter of Purdue’s 44-21 win over Ohio on Friday, the Boilermakers executed one of the craziest plays of the college football season.
Quarterback David Blough handed the ball off to a back, who pitched to a receiver, who pitched back to Blough, who tossed a bomb downfield to tight end Cole Herdman for a 62-yard touchdown.
That was fun, huh?

The score put Purdue up 17-7, and the Boilermakers went on to their first win of the season and coach Jeff Brohm’s first in West Lafayette, Ind.
“We wanted to put a dagger in there a little bit,” Brohm said of the trick play. “And it worked.”
