Purdue Boilermakers Game Notes

Purdue junior QB Jack Plummer completed 19-of-24 passes for 273 yards and four touchdowns in a 49-0 shutout of UConn on Saturday. Plummer (6'5/220) had his way with the inept UConn defense, hitting a wide open Payne Durham on a 17-yard touchdown strike in the back right corner of the end zone to kickoff the blowout. UConn followed that up by fumbling a snap in their own territory, and the rout was on. HC Jeff Brohm's passing-oriented offense averaged 10.4 yards per attempt while rolling up 562 total yards on one of the FBS' bottom feeding programs. Purdue will now focus on their cross-state pilgrimage to South Bend next weekend to take on Notre Dame.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish Game Notes

Notre Dame QB Tyler Buchner completed all three of his passes for 78 yards and a touchdown in a win over Toledo. The true freshman Buchner (6'1"/207) had the opportunity to take some snaps behind center along with Jack Coan. Coan struggled a little with a pick-six and a fumble. Buchner's touchdown came midway through the fourth quarter to put the Irish up eight. There's a reason Brian Kelly wanted this five-star recruit; he looks like he will have plenty of success for Notre Dame in the future. Notre Dame will host Purdue on Saturday 9/18.
