Game Day Vitals
Purdue Boilermakers vs. Michigan Wolverines
The Purdue Boilermakers and the Michigan Wolverines will square off for the 60th time with Michigan holding a 45 to 14 advantage in the series. This will be the first time the schools have faced each other in the B1G Championship Game where Purdue will makes its’ first appearance and Michigan will be making their second straight (defeated Iowa 42-3).
The last time these two programs met, the Wolverines defeated the Boilers 28-10 in 2017 which is more known for Jim Harbaugh’s post game tantrum about the visiting locker room and off site medical facilities. This season the Wolverines and Boilermakers have shared six common opponents where Michigan has gone 6-0 and Purdue 4-2 (Penn State Nittany Lions, Indiana Hoosiers, Maryland Terrapins, Wisconsin Badgers, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Illinois Fighting Illini).
Michigan will be playing for a spot in the College Football Playoff again this season and with a victory will likely lock them into the #2 ranking behind current #1 Georgia Bulldogs. Purdue, with a victory, could find themselves in the Rose Bowl for the first time since 2001 but they are likely headed to the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida either way with Ohio State likely to get the nod to Pasadena.
