Spencer Evans kicked a 25-yard field goal with eight seconds remaining to stymie No. 16 Iowa's Big Ten West championship hopes.

Purdue (5-4, 4-2) rallied with a drive that lasted 4 minutes, 22 seconds to win 38-36 after Iowa had taken its first lead of the game with 13 straight points to start the fourth quarter.

David Blough completed 23 of his 32 passes for 333 yards and four touchdowns, three to Terry Wright, who totaled six catches and 146 yards. Blough also threw two interceptions, including one to Amani Hooker that set up Mekhi Sargent's 1-yard TD for Iowa's only lead of the game, 36-35.

Sargent scored two touchdowns and he and Ivory Kelly-Martin both carried 10 times for 39 yards, while Toren Young picked up 45 yards on nine attempts.

Iowa (6-3, 3-3) found more success through the air, with Nate Stanley completing 21 of 32 for 275 yards and a TD, but it wasn't enough.

The Hawkeyes host West Division leader Northwestern next week.
