Dating back to 1943, the Purdue Cannon has become synonymous with the Purdue Boilermakers and Illinois Fighting Illini football series. Currently the Boilermakers hold a one game advantage in the series with a 46-45-6 lead and look to spoil the magical run the Fighting Illini have enjoyed under 2nd year Head Coach Brett Bielema. Purdue will work for a 3rd week to gain bowl eligibility and avoid a fourth occurrence of three consecutive losses in Jeff Brohm’s 6th year as Head Coach (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020).
