IOWA CITY (Iowa) -- Purdue coach Jeff Brohm stated that the pressure was on No. 2 Iowa.

The Hawkeyes began the season with six consecutive wins, and the program was at its highest rank since 1985.

Brohm stated, "Let's get out there and swing and keep swinging and hoping for the best."

Just like they did against the Hawkeyes, the Boilermakers also connected.

Aidan O'Connell threw 374 yards and three touchdowns. David Bell had a career best 240 yards of receiving and Purdue continued to dominate Iowa with a 24-7 win Saturday.

The Boilermakers (4-2 and 2-1 Big Ten) have won 4 of 5 against the Hawkeyes (6-1 and 3-1). This loss ended Iowa’s 12-game winning streak. It also included nine consecutive Big Ten games.

Purdue defeated its highest-ranked opponent on the roads since a win at No. 2 Notre Dame in 1974. This was the second consecutive season Purdue knocked off a No. The Boilermakers defeated Ohio State in 2018 at home. In 2018, the Boilermakers beat Ohio State, second-ranked.
