IU suffered it's third straight loss by three scores or more. The Hoosiers lost to in-state rival Purdue 56-35 in the final game of the season. 

IU finishes the season 4-8 (2-6). The Hoosiers lost three straight weeks to Big Ten foes in one sided fashion. 

The Hoosiers suffered from the same problems that have plagued them all season. They failed completely on defense and were extremely inconsistent on offense. 

IU tied the game up at 35 early in the fourth quarter, but gave up three straight unanswered touchdowns to the Boilermakers. Two of which came off IU turnovers. 

IU turned the ball over four times, and all four times Purdue was able to get the ball into the end zone.

The one bright spot was the play of running back Stephen Houston. Houston had 158 yards rushing for three touchdowns and 13 receptions for 97 yards. He set carrier highs in rushing, receiving, total yards and touchdowns for himself today. 

Cam Coffman was his usual inconsistent self today. The sophomore was 31-of-53 for 348 yards a touchdown and three interceptions. He had another day of over throwing wide open receivers and staring down his targets. 

IU's season is over, and we will reflect on the season in the coming week.
