Austin Appleby has now thrown for three 50-yard or more touchdown passes this afternoon against the Indiana State Sycamores. His third touchdown pass came on a last second Hail Mary in the first half for 51 yards to wide receiver Dan Monteroso.
The Purdue Boilermakers came out this afternoon looking to take out their frustration from losing last week against Marshall on their in-state rivals.
It is good to see Appleby playing well this afternoon after his embarrassing performance last week. He was a turnover machine against Marshall, but he is showing why head coach Darrell Hazell stuck with him as the starter. Purdue certainly looks like they will improve to 1-1 on the season, but they have to continue playing strong in the second half and finish off this game in dominant fashion.
