October 13, 1934 - Playing against another alum
For the second straight week the Irish faced a team coached by an ND alum. And Nobel Kizer was said to be pissed off that he had been past over for the ND job.
Kizer had beaten the Irish the previous year (19-0). And he had most of his players back this season. He expected to win handily.
But ND dashed those expectations during a 10 minute period in the second quarter when the Irish scored 3 times. Mink Melinovich scored on a 60 yd run, followed by a 70 yd INT return by Fred Carideo and finally another short TD run by 'Mink' that had been set up by a 35 yd pass by Junior Mike Layden-the coach's younger brother.
Purdue avoided the shutout with a second half score but Kizer, who thought he was going to rub it in to the good Fathers who passed him over, went home disappointed. ND left the field the victors, 18-7.
