Purdue beats error-prone S. Illinois 35-13

Purdue converted two first-quarter turnovers into touchdowns and used those 14 points as the springboard to a 35-13 victory against Southern Illinois on Saturday.

Danny Etling threw touchdown passes of 10 yards to DeAngelo Yancey and 44 yards to Danny Anthrop during the first quarter after a fumble by Southern Illinois running back Malcolm Agnew and then after an interception of Salukis Mark Iannotti.

Purdue (2-2) increased its lead to 17-0 with seven seconds left in the first quarter on a 30-yards field goal by Paul Griggs.

The Boilermakers moved 56 yards in 10 plays after Southern Illinois (3-1) missed a 47-yard field goal.

Southern Illinois, which entered 3-0 for the first time since 2007, got untracked after falling behind by 25, getting two field goals from Thomas Kinney and a 1-yard touchdown run from Iannotti after Purdue's Raheem Mostert fumbled at the Boilermakers' 47.
