Purdue to play in Heart of Dallas Bowl

The Purdue football team is heading to Texas for its final game of the season.

The Boilermakers will play Oklahoma State in the Heart of Dallas Bowl, January 1st.

Quarterback Robert Marve says the game is an opportunity for he and his fellow seniors to go out on a high note.

"Things got rough and the bad times were there for us this year and we haven't forgotten those times," said Marve.  "It's fun to win football games.  It's fine to go out and be IU by 21 points.  That was a fun time.  We want another experience like that.  That's what we are looking for."

"I think we had consistency as far as playing hard, in the first half.  We out rebounded them and things like that.  The ball just wasn't going in. It just came down to taking bad shots at bad times and that gave them points," said Terone Johnson.  "Not being disciplined is why we lost today."
