Miami falls to Purdue 38-31 in Overtime
Miami kept close to Purdue all Saturday afternoon, and had a chance to win the game at the end of regulation. However, following a blocked field goal attempt by Nathan Parseghian, Purdue managed to score the only touchdown in overtime as Miami fell 38-31.
Unlike last Thursday's game with Northwestern, Miami managed to throw downfield more and racked up 483 yards of total offense, out-gaining Purdue by 90 yards. However, Miami only scored in 3 of their 5 chances in the red zone, and only made 1 of 3 field goal attempts.
Mike Kokal had a notable performance in throwing for 378 yards and four touchdowns, including one after coming back after an injury caused him to sit out for several plays and pressed backup Daniel Raudabaugh into service. Raudabaugh went 2-for2 and 32 yards in four plays, and helped set up the tying score with 6:12 remaining.
