The Boilers travel to Champaign this weekend with hopes of clinching a bowl berth. Standing in their way are the Illini. With a record of 2-8 they do not look very scary, but they have given a lot of teams trouble this year, including the #1 team in the country last weekend. They shut down Ohio State’s offense in the second half last week, and were still in the game until the last second. Purdue on the other hand was lucky to come out of Lansing with a two point victory last weekend. A gift field goal towards the end of the game gave them the game. They will have to play a good game to get the win this week. Purdue will have to contain the ground game of the Illini, and get their own going to win this game. In the end I think that they will, and this game will be over early.
