WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Travis Greene scored on a 12-yard touchdown run with 9 seconds left giving Bowling Green a 35-28 victory over Purdue on Saturday.

The Falcons (2-2) have wins over two Big Ten schools this season -- the first time Bowling Green has beaten two power-conference teams in the same season since 2003.

Bowling Green's Matt Johnson entered this week as the FBS leader in passing yardage and touchdowns and finished 43 of 59 with 402 yards, one TD and one interception. Greene carried 11 times for 70 yards and two scores.

Purdue kicker Paul Griggs missed a 32-yard field goal with 2:50 to play and Johnson took the Falcons 80 yards on nine plays in 2:41 for the winning score.

Purdue's David Blough was 28 of 39 for 340 yards in his first college start with two TD passes. He also ran for a score-- but the Boilermakers (1-3) lost their second straight.
