This is a business trip to Champaign. Yesterday a couple of home teams got leveled by road teams as Northwestern went to Minnesota and won by 25, while Nebraska, of all people, won by 34 at Rutgers. Illinois is really struggling right now, so Purdue just needs to take care of business and avoid the bad loss.
