WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — It won’t be on the Big Ten’s proverbial postcard of great games. But Randy Gregory might find a fancy frame and put it above the fireplace.
Shaking off its own medley of injuries and miscues — including a potentially costly injury on offense and a questionable ejection on defense — Nebraska pummeled Purdue 44-7 in a stadium that was close to half-red at the start and almost empty by the end. A lovely day — seasonal temps, light breeze, cotton ball clouds hovering over campus trees daring to turn autumn yellow — didn’t get a crowd or a contest to match.
