WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Danny Etling passed for two touchdowns and ran for another Saturday, helping Purdue snap a 12-game losing streak against FBS competition with a 43-34 victory against Western Michigan.
    
Two Jarvion Franklin touchdown runs gave the visiting Broncos a 14-10 second-quarter lead, but the Boilermakers -- 1-11 in 2013 -- scored the first half's final 13 points and never trailed again, although Western Michigan pulled to within 37-34 with 8:11 remaining.
    
Purdue had not beaten an FBS opponent since defeating Indiana on Nov. 24, 2012.
    
Etling threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Justin Sinz and an 8-yarder to Gabe Holmes.
    
Purdue got field goals of 35, 51 and 44 yards from Paul Griggs. The 51-yarder is a career long and ties the sixth-longest in school history.
    
The Boilermakers also got a 56-yard interception return and 27- and 36-yard punt returns from safety Frankie Williams to set up 17 points.
