Purdue has the opportunity tonight to do what they failed to do against IU and clinch an outright Big Ten title with a victory rather than getting a share via someone else losing (this of course all depends on what Michigan does in the second half against Illinois). Going to Wisconsin is never easy but this season has been a strange one in Madison. Wisconsin has been alternating between wins and losses for about 9 games now and if the pattern holds they are due for a win. Patterns aren’t important though. What is important is effort. Purdue needs to go out strong and find a way to get back on track.
