At this point Purdue has lost just one conference road game and we all know when and where that loss happened. Today Purdue heads into an environment much less known for intimidation and more known for…ummm…Julia Louis-Dreyfus?
Northwestern is having one of their best season in recent memory. They are well on their way to making it into just their second NCAA Tournament. Purdue meanwhile is well on their way to their 25th conference title. Each win moves Purdue one step closer and a win today would make their magic just two for at least a share of the title.
#1 Purdue (23-2, Big 10 12-2) vs. Northwestern (17-7, Big 10 8-5)
