Purdue at #6 Michigan State: Game Thread & How to Watch

Purdue faces probably its toughest test of the season.

NCAA Basketball: Iowa at Purdue Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

Winning in East Lansing would be a monumental victory for this Purdue team. Not only would it give us a quality road win that we were lacking from the non-conference season, it would thrust us right back into the Big Ten title race since MSU and Michigan are the last teams unbeaten in conference play.

It won’t be easy.
