Purdue thought that they had a decently hard early season schedule when the season began. Toledo is tough at home, and Central Michigan is the reigning MAC champion, and Notre Dame is a perienial tough game. What we have seen this year is Purdue running over its opponents. Purdue is 4-0 and hoping for big things this season. Here is how the season has gone so far:
September 1, 2007: Purdue 52 at Toledo 24
September 8, 2007: Purdue 52 vs Eastern Illinois 6
September 15, 2007: Purdue 45 vs Central Michigan 22
September 22, 2007: Purdue 45 at Minnesota 21
As you can see by the scores Purdue has really poured on the points so far this season. The troubling trend the last two weeks is how the defense has played in the second half. They have played great in the first half, but faltered as the game has gone on. They need to keep up the intensity the entire game once the Big Ten starts. The Purdue offense has so many weapons that I think a lot of teams will be hard pressed to stop them. This is one of the better teams that I have seen in a few years.
