 WEST LAFAYETTE, IN (AP) - Robert Marve threw a touchdown pass and was nearly perfect in his return from a knee injury to help Purdue beat Southeast Missouri State 59-0 on Saturday.

Marve had been out since tearing the ACL in his left knee early last season. He entered the game in the second quarter and completed 7 of 8 passes for 91 yards and a touchdown. The Boilermakers (2-1) scored on all three of his possessions.

Starter Caleb TerBush completed 14 of 17 passes for 143 yards. The Boilermakers rushed for 393 yards and had 627 yards of total offense, compared to 153 for Football Championship Subdivision member Southeast Missouri State (0-2).

Purdue notched its first shutout since a 51-0 win over Syracuse on Sept. 5, 2004, and allowed under 200 yards for the first time since playing Ball State on Sept. 11, 2004.
