It’s safe to say the mood around Purdue football has changed — for the better.
After a tumultuous 2016 campaign during which the Boilermakers finished 3-9, fired former coach Darrell Hazell midway through
the season and missed out on bowl season for the fourth campaign in a row, Purdue set out to change the culture in 2017.
Led by coach Jeff Brohm, who was hired on Dec. 5., 2016, Purdue turned heads this season, finishing the regular season
6-6 and earning a bid to the Foster Farms Bowl at Levi’s Stadium on Dec. 27 against Arizona. Athletic director Mike
Bobinski relived the Boilermakers’ journey in a Twitter video posted Sunday evening.
