Once again, Our Most Hatred Rival comes to Purdue for an important game before that piddly little "rivalry" with Indiana takes center stage. This weekend the hated Hawkeyes bring their special brand of "basketball" to Mackey Arena after getting destroyed by Wisconsin during the week. This is a tricky game for Purdue, so hopefully we can break our lengthy losing streak against ranked teams.
