Purdue game photo galleries | by Pat

This week we have galleries from, the South Bend Tribune, Irish Illustrated, Blue and Gold Illustrated, Era of Ara (Irish Eyes - password: grapenuts) Getty Images, and the AP photo wire.

No obvious candidates for picture of the week. I'll go with this one of Darius Walker taken by AP photographer Michael Conroy. It's a good summary of how the game went as Darius was just a step too fast for the Purdue defense all day. (or, as some other Irish fans might say, just a step too slow to break away completely). I will say though that perhaps the coolest photo is the one taken by Matt Cashore of Rhema making a reception over a Purdue player in the driving rain. It's photo #12 in the Irish Illustrated gallery. Check it out. And yes, he did catch that pass.
