Nebraska 27, Purdue 14
Tommy Armstrong Jr. accounted for 303 yards of offense and two touchdowns, and Nebraska came back from a four-point halftime deficit to beat Purdue.
The Cornhuskers (70, 4-0 Big Ten) probably didn’t convince the skeptics who say they aren’t worthy of a Top 10 ranking, but they’ll head to No. 10 Wisconsin next week with their best record since 2001.
Armstrong was 17 for 31 for 252 yards and ran 10 times for 51 yards.
Purdue (3-4, 1-3) managed only 94 yards in the second half in interim coach Gerad Parker’s first game since taking over for the fired Darrell Hazell.
