Purdue pulled off an incredible upset over Iowa 24-7 Saturday.

The Hawkeyes entered the game against the Boilermakers as the number two team in America, but they fell apart in humiliating fashion. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Not only did they lose as a heavy favorite in the B1G matchup, they got absolutely destroyed. Purdue went into Iowa City and wrecked the Hawkeyes.

This is a classic example of why college football is such an awesome sport. Purdue is an afterthought most of the time, and they dominated a team today with national title aspirations.

Upsets like this rarely happen in the NFL. In college football, every week matters and anything can happen.

Purdue should have gotten crushed today. Instead, they handed it to the Hawkeyes in a fashion that none of us expected.

Now, the Big Ten is plunged even further into chaos. Iowa can still make the playoff if they win out, but their margin for error is completely gone.

Embrace the carnage!
