MINNEAPOLIS — Rondale Moore had 15 catches for 116 yards and ran for a touchdown, but it wasn’t enough as host Minnesota edged Purdue 34-31 in a Big Ten game Friday night.
It was the first contest in over a year for Moore, a New Albany native who starred at Trinity High School in Louisville. Following a breakout freshman season with the Boilermakers, he played in only four games last year due to a hamstring injury.
He initially opted out of the 2020 season, but changed his mind once the Big Ten announced that it would play.
Moore’s 8-yard TD run in the first quarter tied it at 7-all. That was the only tie of the game. The Golden Gophers scored late in the opening period to go up 14-7 before increasing their lead to 21-10 by halftime.
