The Boilermakers recorded nine tackles for a loss in the game, holding the the Illini to just one touchdown.

The win came at a cost for Purdue, though. Quarterback David Blough suffered a significant leg injury early in the fourth quarter and had to be carted off the field.

The win marks Purdue football's first victory in the month of November since 2012. The Boilermakers will go on the road next Saturday as they visit Northwestern.
