    Purdue came into Iowa City expecting a close matchup with the Hawkeyes but they learned the hard way that you can't just walk into Kinnick Stadium and expect a win. The Hawkeyes opened up with a Jordan Canzeri 95 yd kickoff return for the touchdown. Purdue would follow with a 70 yd drive to tie it up at 7. James Vandenberg marched the Hawkeyes right back down the field and connected with Zach Derby on a 23 yd TD pass. Iowa would never look back from that point on. Purdue's Caleb TerBush couldn't get any rhythm going with Iowa constantly showing different defensive looks along with Purdue's redzone turnovers were just too much for the Boilermakers to overcome. When coach Mason was asked about how he felt about sitting atop the Big Ten with 2 games left to go and eying the Hawkeyes first Rose Bowl bid since 1991 he answered: "Where we sit now doesn't matter, we have two very tough games left at Michigan and at home against Nebraska, let's win our division first." Coach Mason never gets too excited about things, let's see if he can keep his calm over the next two weeks and a possible rematch with Purdue in the Big Ten title game.
