This week is a critical one for Purdue. The Boilers squandered the momentum of the road win at Iowa, and now they are looking at a probable four game losing streak if they can’t beat a Nebraska team that has struggled to win games, but has been within a possession in all five losses. They are coming off of a bye week too. It is not a must win for Purdue, but it is a game Purdue can win and it would mean an awful lot if they could get it.
It is a question of what Purdue shows up. The offense is what it is at this point, but at least it is facing a weaker defense than the last three it faced.
Purdue’s defense finally faces a good passing offense, and it is the No. 2 offense overall in the league. It will be an interesting game, and it is yet another hinge point for Purdue.
