  Draft Scout by Conference

  10/15/22 - QB Aidan OConnellrSr/2023, Purdue

  Aidan O'Connell threw four touchdown passes and Devin Mockobee ran for a career-high 178 yards and another score Saturday as Purdue overpowered Nebraska 43-37. The Boilermakers (5-2, 3-1 Big Ten) have won four straight and retained a share of the conference's West Division lead with No. 24 Illinois. Nebraska (3-4, 2-2) had its two-game winning streak under interim coach Mickey Joseph snapped. O'Connell has played well this year, but Mockobee's presence gave the Boilermakers struggling ground game a spark. The combination was electric. Mockabee barreled through defenders, eluded tackles and even showed his shiftiness in the open field. He surpassed his previous single-game rushing total before scoring on a 1-yard run with 35 seconds left in the first half.

Purdue finished with its fifth-highest point total in a Big Ten game since Jeff Brohm arrived in 2017. Trey Palmer was equally impressive, almost single-handedly keeping Nebraska close. He caught a 37-yard TD pass on the fifth play of the second half to cut a 14-point halftime deficit in half and set up a field goal with a 60-yard run on his only carry of the game to make it 27-23. And after TJ Sheffield's 28-yard TD catch extended Purdue's margin to 34-23, Palmer answered on the next series with a 72-yard TD reception. Even when it appeared the Boilermakers sealed the victory with a 2-yard TD pass from O'Connell to Jones with 6:55 left, Palmer answered with a 64-yard reception that set up Anthony Grant's 1-yard TD run to make it 43-37 with 5:55 to go. But Nebraska never got the ball back. - Purdue/AP College Football
