Consistency along the offensive line spearheads a new balance for Purdue Football

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — A passing-heavy aerial assault has been synonymous with Purdue football in recent memory. In the era of head coach Jeff Brohm, the Boilermakers have often struggled to run the ball.

But without starting quarterback Aidan O’Connell at full force the past two weeks, it’s been the running game that has helped lead the team to wins by closing out games, and Purdue’s offensive line is at the vanguard of that recent success.

“We need to do the best job we can to put them in a position to be successful in having some balance,” Brohm said during his weekly news conference on Monday. “If you ask them to protect the pass for the whole game, no one can do that.”
