NCAA Football: Purdue at Michigan State Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve been here before.

Purdue facing a top 5 team? Purdue with a chance to wreck the playoff hopes of the opposition? A game under the lights on a big channel with everyone watching? Say what you will about Jeff Brohm, but he is 2-0 against teams ranked in the top 5 at the time of the game. Michigan State qualifies too. They are sitting pretty in the first CFP rankings at No. 3, giving them the inside track to the promised land of losing to Alabama or Georgia.

This one won’t be easy. We’re facing one of the most dominant individual player sin all of college football. We’re facing a team that has been in the fire and won close games. Purdue’s best shot is to play clean, not turn the ball over, and hope for a let down after the Spartans won a big rivalry game just a week ago.
