NCAA Football: Purdue at Nebraska Dylan Widger-USA TODAY Sports

Coach Brohm’s Boilermakers are one win away from bowl eligibility. They’ve already knocked off one top-5 team on the road and now get a chance to knock off the undefeated Michigan St. Spartans at home.

For the Spartans, it will be a big road game following an even bigger rivalry win against in-state rival Michigan. The Spartans are in control of their destiny in the Big Ten and in the natural title picture. They have a chance for both without losing a game to this point in the season.

Fall is starting to hit in Big Ten territory, but the weather looks to be picturesque and very football appropriate. Both programs will have a chance to make a big step forward. Purdue can lock up a bowl and give them a chance to get past six regular season wins in a season under Coach Brohm. The Spartans have a chance to take the reigns of the Big Ten and step onto the national stage.
