Template:2014 Big Ten football standings The 2014 Purdue Boilermakers football team was an American football team that represented Purdue University during the 2014 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The Boilermakers played in the new West Division of the Big Ten Conference and played their home games at Ross–Ade Stadium in West Lafayette, Indiana. The team was led by head coach Darrell Hazell, who was in his second season at Purdue. Purdue finished the season with a record of 3–9, 1–7 in Big Ten play to finish in last place in the West Division. This marked the first time since 1993 that Purdue finished with the worst record in the Big Ten in back-to-back seasons.

Hazell announced that the quarterback position was an open battle prior to spring practice, notably including sophomore Danny Etling, red-shirt sophomore Austin Appleby and true freshman David Blough.[1] On August 18, 2014, Hazell named Etling the starting quarterback.[2]
