Purdue fans have waited a little over 8 months for this rematch. Purdue has struggled this season offensively, so there is definitely apprehension as Purdue faces the nation’s best defensive team, but hopefully some Mackey magic can carry the day. It is not an exact rematch with De’Andre Hunter, Carsen Edwards, Kyle Guy, Ryan Cline, Jack Salt, and Grady Eifert gone, but it still should be a dandy.
