  Draft Scout by Conference

  12/30/22 - QB Aidan OConnellrSr/2023, Purdue

  Purdue came into the Music City Bowl short-handed and banged-up, particularly at wide receiver. The Boilermakers are going home winners after a game that had people clicking over to catch an amazing finish. Mitchell Fineran kicked a 39-yard field goal in overtime and Purdue finished off its best season since 2003 by overcoming a 14-point deficit and beating Tennessee 48-45 on Thursday in a record-setting Music City Bowl. Purdue's Aidan O'Connell threw for 534 yards and five touchdowns with three interceptions.

He couldn't explain the final five minutes of regulation as the teams combined to score four TDs - two apiece. "It's why you love the game, it's why it keeps bringing you back," O'Connell said. "The fact it's unknown. No one knows what's going to happen. It's not a movie or TV show where the actors get retries. It seems like the world's watching and anything could happen." Purdue (9-4) tied for the second-most wins in program history as only the 12th team in the Boilermakers' 134-year history to win nine games. They also won their fifth game away from home, something they hadn't done since 1943. "We found a way to just barely win," Purdue coach Jeff Brohm said. - Purdue/AP College Football
