WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – David Blough threw for a school record 572 yards, but it was not enough, as Purdue lost 40-37 to Missouri, Saturday evening.

The Tigers (3-0) kicked a game-winning 25 yard field goal as time expired to seal the victory. Quarterback Drew Lock, though overshadowed by Blough statistically, still delivered a more than strong performance with 375 yards passing and three touchdowns.

The Boilers (0-3) have started the season with three-straight home losses and hope to avoid four next Saturday at Ross-Ade Stadium when undefeated Boston College comes to town for a noon kickoff.
