Iowa football fans might want a beer after the loss to Purdue.
But a Boilermakers football player might have beaten them to it.
No. 2 Iowa struggled in a 24-7 loss to unranked Purdue on Saturday. Jeff Brohm’s Boilermaker offense rank circles around the Hawkeye defense, and wideout David Bell feasted with 240 yards and a score.
In what could have been a sign of frustration, a fan tossed a beer onto the field at Kinnick Stadiumduring the third quarter, according to Des Moines Register photographer Bryon Houlgrave, who captured the moment. The can made its way near Purdue offensive lineman Greg Long. Instead of immediately throwing it to the sidelines, the offensive lineman decided it was time for a drink, dumping the bottle’s remaining contents onto his face.
Call it a reward, if you will, for Purdue’s offensive domination.
The Boilermakers compiled 464 total yards of offense. And Long and his fellow offensive linemen allowed just one sack against a vaunted Hawkeye defense.
