In the second quarter, quarterback Kyle Orton found wide receiver John Standeford for a 7-yard touchdown pass, to put Purdue on the scoreboard down 17-7. Just before halftime, Washington fumbled the ball, and it was recovered by Ray Williams in the end zone for a touchdown, making the halftime score 17-14.

In the third quarter, Berin Lacevic kicked a 22-yard field goal to tie the game at 17. Running back Joey Harris later scored on a 10-yard touchdown run for Purdue, giving Purdue its first lead at 24-17. On Washington's next possession, they fumbled again, and Gilbert Gardner ran it in 19 yards for a touchdown, and Purdue increased its lead to 31-17.

A 29-yard field goal in the 4th quarter by Purdue made the lead 34-17, and Purdue had scored 17 unanswered points.
