And Iowa State (1-8, 0-6) will have a week to get over it before hitting the road to face one of the Big 12’s toughest opponents. ISU heads to Oklahoma to face the 18th-ranked Sooners next Saturday at 11 a.m.
“I told my son last night that one game does not define a season and one play doesn’t define a game,” Rhoads said. “What I know is I have a team that plays with phenomenal emotion that I’m very grateful to coach.”

Canzeri leads Iowa to 38-14 win over Purdue Courier sports staff
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Jordan Canzeri ran for a career-high 165 yards on 20 carries to help the Iowa Hawkeyes defeat the Purdue Boilermakers 38-14 on Saturday afternoon.
Canzeri, a sophomore who entered the game with 173 yards rushing all season, also scored a touchdown to help the Hawkeyes become bowl eligible. Jake Rudock passed for 191 yards and two touchdowns for Iowa (6-4, 3-3 Big Ten), which set season highs for total yards (509) and yards rushing (318).
Danny Etling completed 15 of 28 passes for 145 yards for Purdue (1-8, 0-5), which has lost seven straight and has not beaten a Football Bowl Subdivision team this year. The Boilermakers have scored 31 points in five Big Ten games, with two of the touchdowns coming in the final minute of play.
Early in the second quarter, Rudock found Don Shumpert down the middle of the field for 34 yards to move the Hawkeyes into Purdue territory. Eventually, Canzeri scored from the 2 to give Iowa a 7-0 lead. The touchdown capped a 90-yard drive that included a third-and-1 conversion by Mark Weisman to move the Hawkeyes to the Purdue 2-yard line.
Purdue caught its first break in a long time when Iowa's Kevonte Martin-Manley fumbled a punt and Purdue's Armstead Williams recovered at the Iowa 35.
