Purdue wins Old Oaken Bucket game

This past Saturday, the Old Oaken Bucket game took place at Purdue. Both the Hoosiers and Boilermakers sat at 3-8 overall for the season going into the game. 

The Hoosiers are 1-7 in the Big Ten while the Boilermakers are 2-6. That being said, both teams would not be advancing after this game, making an end to their season regardless of who won.

The Purdue quarterback Hudson Card had some rib soreness throughout the game. Card threw three touchdown passes, then giving the Boilermakers the big win he made a 10 yard run with 2:39 left on the clock. 

The Hoosier paid for their mistakes after their countless missed tackles. The Boilermakers spent most of the game trying to catch up to the Hoosiers, even though the Boilermakers made far less mistakes. The Boilermakers won with a final score of 35-31.

“I think Purdue is just better at everything,” junior Asher Dilts said, “They deserved to win and I believe that the game should have not been as close as it turned out to be.”

“I lowkey didn’t have an opinion on who won because my family supports both teams,” junior Jackson Bowden said, “I personally would’ve wanted IU to win though because I like IU more than Purdue.”

Following the loss, the Hoosiers dealt with a controversial question: would they keep head coach Tom Allen for another season? 

The following day it was announced that Allen was fired with a $15.5 million dollar settlement.

Most fans weren’t surprised regarding the news of Allen’s dismissal. 

“IU Hoosier fans have been questioning Allen’s coaching for a while,” Bowden said, “But Allen will remain well-respected from the Hoosier community.”

The Hoosiers and Boilermakers will not be advancing to the future bowl games this season.
