It’s a good match up on Friday night at Ross–Ade Stadium in West Lafayette, Indiana. The Ohio Bobcats come to town to take on the Purdue Boilermakers.
These two teams have played seven times in their history but the last game was in 1988. The Boilermakers have won all five of the match ups
On the other side of this match up is the Ohio Bobcats who have high hopes for their season, and the first real test for them will come in this game against Purdue.
They scheduled a cupcake in week one, and they sure treated it like that. They beat the Hampton Pirates by a final score of 59-0 and although they dominated the game, it’s hard to know how good they will be based off that game.
The Pirates are an FCS level school that finished with only five wins last year. The starters only played a half in the game, and they didn’t suffer any huge injuries so that is helpful.
To win this game they need to create turnovers. Purdue will give up the ball if they just force it, and to pull the upset they need that to happen.
On the other side of this match up is the Purdue Boilermakers who really opened up a lot of eyes from their first game, even though they came away with a loss.
They played Lamar Jackson and the Louisville Tigers tough and only lost by seven points. They were actually leading at the beginning of the fourth quarter, but they couldn’t slow down Jackson late and it cost them.
For the Boilermakers to have that game matter though, they need to play well in this game too. If they come out and struggle early in this game, what they were able to accomplish against the Cardinals won’t matter.
David Blough is the quarterback for the Boilermakers and he had his ups and downs in game one. He threw for 175 yards and two touchdowns, but he also threw two interceptions.
To win this game it’s going to be on the shoulders of Blough and the offense of the Boilermakers. He needs to make more sound decisions with the ball, and not make mistakes in key areas.
If he can do that, the Boilermakers will win this game, and even up their record at 1-1.
