Weekly Purdue Review

Throughout football season, GoldandBlack.com takes a weekly review of Boilermaker football in its Weekly Purdue Review.

Today, we take a look at things coming out of the Boilermakers' 48-21 Week 8 win over Iowa, in advance of their meeting with Northwestern Saturday.

Who's hot

Curtis Painter: The QB rejoins the list after one of his best games of the season against one of the better defenses Purdue will face this year.

Dorien Bryant: The wide receiver had the biggest game of his career, statistically, after two rough outings.

Jaycen Taylor: The man can do no wrong.

Selwyn Lymon: The receiver caught five passes against the Hawkeyes, didn't drop any, and drew a couple defensive penalties.

Alex Magee: Defensive linemen aren't always gauged by their numbers, but Magee's illustrated his activity by making 13 tackles the past two weeks. He alternated Saturday between tackle and end and is said to be playing some of his best football.

Terrell Vinson: The senior corner made a near-goal-line interception and a sack Saturday, two of Purdue's bigger defensive plays.

Eugene Bright: Purdue's been waiting for some time to see Bright do what he did Saturday, truly impact the game as a pass-rusher. Of his two sacks, his spin move en route to bagging Jake Christensen was pretty neat.
