WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- With the wind against him, Purdue kicker Chris Summers badly hooked a 44-yard field-goal attempt that would have won the game.
Quarterback Curtis Painter appeared to break his big-game blues by leading the Boilermakers inside Oregon territory. But they got conservative in the final minute and paid the price.
Purdue's defense has played out of its mind so far but needs another stop. Oregon can blame a lack of discipline -- ball-handling, penalties, decisions -- if it falls short today. The Boilers are 3-5 all-time in overtime.
