WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) — The Big Ten Conference recognized Rondale Moore as its co-Freshman of the Week. The first-year wide receiver electrified the Boilermaker fan base with a record-breaking performance against Northwestern in the opening week of college football.

Moore racked up a school-record 313 all-purpose yards against the Wildcats, rushing twice for 79 yards and touchdown, catching a game-high 11 passes for 109 yards with a score and returning five kickoffs for 125 yards. The previous record holder, All-American Otis Armstrong, established the former mark of 312 all-purpose yards Nov. 25, 1972 against Indiana.

Moore is the first freshman (true or redshirt) in school history to record a 100-yard receiving game in his first career appearance.

Moore shared the weekly honor with Maryland wide receiver Jeshaun Jones.
