HOUSTON -- Justin Allen blocked Carson Wiggs' 31-yard field-goal attempt as time expired and Rice snapped its 10-year losing streak against Bowl Championship Series teams with a 24-22 victory over Purdue on Saturday.
The Owls (1-1) had lost 22 consecutive games to BCS opponents since a 15-13 win over Duke on Sept. 8, 2001. Rice had not beaten a Big Ten team since a 40-34 win at Northwestern in 1997.
The Boilermakers got the ball near midfield with 1:52 remaining, and three long runs by Ralph Bolden moved them inside the 20.
Purdue was content to let the clock run down so that Wiggs' kick would be the final play. But Allen surged through the middle of the line and blocked it, and the Owls' sideline emptied onto the field in celebration.
