The Purdue Boilermakers and Marshall Thundering Herd kicked off their 2015 campaigns on Sunday afternoon, but things got off to a rough start for Purdue.
On the opening drive of the game, quarterback Austin Appleby attempted to open up the offense by targeting a receiver downfield, but the only thing he found was an eager defender waiting for the ball. After the interception, Marshall was able to take it to the house.
