Purdue claims Old Oaken Bucket over Indiana

(TSX / STATS) -- Junior running back Markell Jones rushed 31 rushes for 217 yards, and Elijah Sindelar threw touchdown passes in a 31-24 Old Oaken victory Saturday against rival Indiana in West Lafayette, Ind.

With the victory -- Purdue's first against the Hoosiers (5-7) since 2012 -- the Boilermakers (6-6) are bowl eligible for the first time since 2012. Purdue went 3-1 in November to qualify for the postseason, beating Illinois, Iowa and Indiana.

Sindelar's 4-yard touchdown pass to Isaac Ziko with 12:32 remaining pushed the Purdue lead to 31-10, but the Hoosiers rallied. Indiana got within 31-17 with 5:50 to go on Richard Lagow's 4-yard TD pass to Taysir Mack and to 31-24 with 1:01 left on Lagow's 9-yard TD pass to Whop Philyor.
