If Ohio State offensive coordinator Ed Warinner is a candidate for the Purdue job, that's news to him. "That stuff comes up and the only way I find out about it is if somebody texts me or [the media] brings it up," Warinner said. "Otherwise, I'm just grinding, trying to get this football team better. ... I focus on that, and those [other] things take care of themselves. I don't have to get involved in any of that stuff. I'm just going to take care of my job."

Steele: Cornhuskers are a good play

Nebraska has Wisconsin next week, but don't expect a letdown against coach-less Purdue on Saturday. The Cornhuskers (-24) are clicking on all cylinders according to Phil Steele, and the Boilermakers have their own problems. Best Bets (Insider)

Midseason recruiting review: Big Ten

The Big Ten is home to four teams in the AP Top 25 as well as the No. 1 recruiting class with all eyes looking at Michigan-Ohio State.

Brian Bennett ESPN Staff Writer 

Purdue interim coach Gerad Parker, who took over when Darrell Hazell was fired Sunday, said he doesn't plan to change much on either side of the ball. Parker said the focus now for the 3-3 Boilermakers is trying to get to a bowl game as a reward for the seniors. Purdue is at No. 8 Nebraska on Saturday.

Some names I'm hearing today who could have interest in Purdue -- some Power 5 coaches, some top coordinators -- reinforce the need for the school to step up financially. If Purdue truly is willing to pay the going rate, it could make a fairly splashy hire.

Iowa comes up big in win over Purdue (1:23)

Jesse Temple ESPN Staff Writer 

Iowa hangs on for a 49-35 victory against Purdue to set a school record with its ninth consecutive road win. The teams combined for 1,024 yards of total offense in what turned into a shootout. Purdue QB David Blough was exceptional, throwing for 458 yards with five touchdowns and one interception. But Purdue's run defense struggled all day. Iowa tailbacks Akrum Wadley and LeShun Daniels Jr. accounted for 326 rushing yards with three touchdowns. Now, the Hawkeyes are back in the thick of the Big Ten West race.


Desmond King piles it on with pick-six

King, who had eight interceptions last year, nabbed his first of the season and went 40 yards the other way with it for a TD and a 49-28 Iowa lead over Purdue.

Anish Shroff ESPN Commentator 

Purdue has no answer for Iowa's rushing attack. The Hawkeyes piled up 269 rush yards in the first half (on 27 attempts). The Boilermakers have given up 984 rushing yards in the last 10 quarters.


Hawkeyes running all over Purdue
