I felt like Hope choked that game away. Once Purdue got up 22-14, he just started running the ball up the middle and trying to kill clock--even with half the 4th quarter left. One or two first downs probably would have been enough to win, but Hope never even gave his offense a chance.
"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
