WEST LAFAYETTE, Indiana (Ticker) -- In two minutes, Travis
Dorsch went from goat to hero, and he has his teammates to

After missing the go-ahead 32-yard field goal with just over two minutes left, Dorsch kicked a 33-yarder with four seconds to play, completing a comback from an 18-point deficit and lifting Purdue to a 32-31 victory over No. 6 Michigan in a Big Ten Conference matchup.
"It feels great to beat them," said wide receiver Vinny Sutherland, who caught 11 passes for 127 yards and one touchdown.
The meeting of two of the more prolific passers in the conference lived up to expectations.
Drew Brees was brilliant for Purdue (4-2, 2-1 Big Ten), completing 32-of-44 passes for 286 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.
He came through when the Boilermakers needed it most, leading two late-game drives to put the team in position for the upset.
After an equally commanding performance, Drew Henson couldn't pull off the late-game heroics Michigan (4-2, 2-1 Big Ten) needed to remain undefeated in the conference. He was good on 26-of-35 for 256 yards and three touchdowns, but could not move the Wolverines after Dorsch's miss, leaving the door open.
The Boilermakers were hurt by two failed two-point conversions, but still had a chance to take the lead with just over two minutes left. Brees orchestrated a drive to the 8-yard line, but a penalty put Purdue back to the 15 on third down.
After an incompletion, Dorsch had a 32-yard field goal to give Purdue the lead, but his kick was just wide to the left.
"I think the fact that numerous teammates came up to me and said, 'You're going to get another chance, we have confidence in you,' helped pick me up a little bit," Dorsch said. "Anytime you're in a team situation, you love to hear that. You love to know your teammates and coaches have confidence in you. I knew whole-heartedly that if I got another chance, I would make it."
The Purdue defense held Michigan without a gain on three downs and, after a punt, Brees had the ball back on the Boilermakers 40 with 1:41 left.
Over the next minute, Brees directed a drive to the 21, when Michigan was whistled for having 12 men on the field, giving Purdue the ball on the 16.
"He did outstanding," Henson said of his counterpart. "He's their leader and everyone knows that. He put the ball where it needed to be and that's why he's a great quarterback."

Dorsch had virtually the exact same look at the goal posts, but this time he put the ball just inside the left upright.
"This game was great for Travis, because it gets the monkey off his back," Brees said. "I think his confidence is sky high right now. It will be good for us if we get to that situation later in the season."

Brees, who has passed for 1,950 yards and 12 scores this season, had his 23rd game of 250 or more passing yards.

The Wolverines led 28-10 at halftime, but the Boilermakers opened the second half with a 75-yard, 11-play drive, capped by Steve Ennis' one-yard dive. Brees' pass was incomplete on the conversion attempt.

On Purdue's next possession, Montrell Lowe finished off an 80-yard drive with a 16-yard run and Dorsch hit the extra point, bringing the Boilermakers within 28-23.
A 34-yard field goal by Jeff Del Verne gave Michigan a 31-23 lead with 11:55 left in the game.
The Boilermakers ate up five minutes, 10 seconds on an 80-yard drive, and Brees hit freshman John Standeford from 10 yards out, but once again failed on the 2-point conversion attempt, leaving Pudue down 31-29 with 6:45 left.

"The first half, our defense came out flat and we weren't ourselves," defensive end Akin Ayodele said. "We regrouped and coach Tiller told us we had to believe. We had to play our own style of defense, and we did." Extended Box
