How is Purdue's leverage rate so high, by the way? In part because they were turning the ball over so fast that, of the 21 plays they tried before the game reached garbage time, six were drive-starting first downs. Loophole!

But yeah, that whole "immediate garbage time" makes this box score mostly moot. Everything but the EqPts, per-quarter numbers and per-down numbers are based on non-garbage time. Still ... torture porn.
