WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Brady Quinn passed for 440 yards and three touchdowns, two to Jeff Samardzija, leading No. 13 Notre Dame to a 49-28 victory over Purdue on Saturday night.

Quinn was 20-for-23 for 283 yards in the first half to lead Notre Dame (4-1) to a 28-0 intermission lead. He finished the game 29-of-36- a career-high 80.5 percent completion rate – and threw a TD pass for a 10th straight game, tying a school record set by Heisman Trophy winner John Huarte in 1964.

The loss was the biggest by the 22nd-ranked Boilermakers since losing 31-3 at Michigan in 2003. Purdue fell to 12-27 against ranked opponents under ninth-year coach Joe Tiller.
