Purdue has never won at any of the three new Big Ten members. Since Nebraska, Rutgers, and Maryland all joined the league we’re a combined 0-4 at their venues. I take the blame for two of these, as my now infamous road losing streak carried over to Maryland and Rutgers in the last two seasons. I have not been to Nebraska yet, however.
And I am not going this year.
I had originally planned to go, but things fell through and as a result I will be watching from home. That at least gives us a chance. We’re 2-4 all-time against the Cornhuskers, winning in West Lafayette in 1958 and 2015. Our trips to Lincoln include a 35-14 loss in 2014 and a 27-14 loss in 2016 where we led at halftime 14-10 in our first post-Hazell game. This year’s Nebraska team has struggled and is still looking for the first win under new coach Scott Frost.
