WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Coming off Sunday’s win over then-No. 3 Ohio State, fourth-ranked Nebraska stayed on a roll as it downed No. 14 Purdue 31-9 Friday night.

The Huskers, who won seven of the last eight matches, earned bonus points in four of their wins.

Ridge Lovett trailed in his 133-pound match 2-1 after one period before pinning Travis Ford-Melton midway through the second. Then at 165, Isaiah White, who ended Sunday’s win with a dramatic pin, stuck Tanner Webster midway through the first period.

Eric Schultz added a major decision at 197, and Peyton Robb, ranked 18th at 157, won by injury default over No. 7 Kendall Coleman. Robb led 3-1 in the second period when they bumped heads. Coleman went into concussion protocol and couldn’t continue.

At 149, NU’s Collin Purinton earned an impressive 13-6 win over 18th-ranked Griffin Parriott, and at heavyweight, David Jensen led 9-0 in the third period before holding on for a 12-8 win.

Nebraska stays on the road and will face Indiana at noon Sunday.
