The Music City Bowl between Purdue and Auburn is as lopsided as you could possibly imagine. The Tigers went up 56-7 with just over two minutes remaining…in the first half.

Jarrett Stidham has 335 yards and four touchdowns passing, despite having thrown just 18 passes. On the other side, Purdue’s David Blough has no touchdowns and threw one of the worst interceptions you’re ever going to see (watch here).

Perhaps we should have seen this outcome coming when Purdue gave up a way-too-easy touchdown on the game’s third play. Still, it’s pretty stunning to see a Big Ten program getting absolutely waxed like this on the national stage.

There were a ton of reactions once Auburn crossed the 50-point threshold with time still left on the clock in the first half. These were some of the best ones we saw.
