LaGarrette Blount ran 3 yards for a touchdown in the second overtime to give No. 16 Oregon a come-from-behind 32-26 win over Purdue on Saturday. Oregon (3-0) trailed 20-3 early in the second quarter, but tied the game late in the third, and Purdue's Chris Summers missed a 44-yard field goal as time expired in regulation. It was Purdue's 15th consecutive loss against a ranked team.

Oregon got the ball first in overtime, and quarterback Justin Roper was stopped on a third-and-2 at the Purdue 17. Matt Evensen made a 33-yard field goal to give Oregon its first lead, 26-23. On Purdue's first play of overtime, Painter threw down the sideline for Greg Orton, and Oregon's Walter Thurmond was called for pass interference to give Purdue the ball at the Oregon 10. Summers made a 22-yard field goal to force a second overtime.

Painter fumbled on the first play of the second overtime, but Justin Pierce recovered for the Boilermakers. Summers was forced into a 47-yard field goal try, and he missed wide right to set up Oregon's winning drive. Blount finished with 12 carries for 132 yards and two touchdowns, and Jeremiah Johnson added 17 carries for 96 yards.
