In that game, he completed 22 of 29 passes for 297 yards and one touchdown, and rushed 12 times for 111 yards and a score.

The model also knows freshman running back Devin Mockobee leads the Boilermakers' rushing attack. The walk-on carried 182 times for 920 yards (5.1 average) and nine touchdowns. He had a season-long run of 68 yards. Mockobee set the school record for most rushing yards and attempts by a freshman. He has surpassed 100 yards rushing in a game four times, including a season-high 178 yards and one touchdown against Nebraska on Oct. 15.
