Most of the finals for the 2014 Outdoor Big Ten Track & Field Meet will be decided on Sunday, but through two days on its home track the Purdue women sit in third place overall, while the men are in 8th place. On both sides Purdue leads Indiana by a comfortable margin, which is good because Purdue only needs a single point among the two this weekend to win the Crimson & Gold Cup outright from the Hoosiers for the first time since 2007.

Purdue had a Big Ten Champion on Friday on the men's side as Chukwuebuka Enekwechi (please don't make me pronounce it) won the men's hammer throw. Raheem Mostert is also in position to be a Big Ten champ as he won the prelims in the 200 meters.

On the women's side Nikki Nunn of Purdue won the long jump at 20 feet, 5.75 inches. Dani Bunch just missed winning the Shot put, finishing second to Indiana's Kyla Buckley. Bunch was also second in Friday's hammer throw to Penn State's Melissa Kurzdorfer.

Sunday will be the final day of the three day meet.
