No surprise - David Blough is Purdue's starting quarterback.

Coach Darrell Hazell made the announcement Monday after meeting with the team's quarterbacks. Redshirt freshman Elijah Sindelar was also in the mix.

"Hes made outstanding decisions with the ball in his hands and protected the football," Hazell said. "I think this team is ready to go very far with him as our quarterback."

Blough has the experience, starting eight games last season before suffering a concussion at Iowa. The Texas native took over the starting role in the fourth game against Bowling Green, replacing Austin Appleby. In that game, Blough threw for a career-high 340 yards, completing 29 of 39 passes. He threw for four touchdowns and 274 yards against Nebraska.
