This is one of the oldest rivalries in the country – they have played each other 120 times before. This is the battle for the Old Oaken Bucket. Purdue looks like the better team and they have the decided edge historically.
Adding some spice to this one is the fact that both teams are still seeking that 6th victory to get to a bowl game. It is the last game of the season for both programs too so only one will be able to claim it.
Purdue lost a close battle against Wisconsin last week 47-44. Obviously scoring was not an issue but this team just has to make it to a bowl or this year was not exactly the breakthrough they were hoping for after beating Ohio State.
Did I mention that was an OT loss so there could be some letdown here. David Blough was really good throwing for more than 300 yards with 4TDs. He is a senior so if he loses this one it will be his last game. That could be extra motivation.
Wisconsin is awesome running the football but the Boilermakers were absolutely steamrolled last week. Jonathan Taylor had more than 300 yards. Most of the season they have been pretty sound in that regard but now it looks like they are leaking oil.
Indiana held their own at Michigan last week but they have struggled down the stretch, just one win in the last six weeks. In fairness the schedule has been brutal but it has set up this opportunity for the winner to play on.
Under the old regime the Hoosiers were actually a sneaky good offensive team that graduated some talent to the NFL. This year they are kind of pedestrian. They should be able to move the ball against Purdue though.
The defense is pretty much the same, yielding 30ppg. Perhaps that means this final game of the year, win or lose will be an exciting back and forth contest. That seems much more likely than a defensive war.

A couple of weeks ago I would have pegged Purdue to be heavy favorites in this one. Now I am just not sure how the markets will look at them.

I do still like them in this spot even on the road. Odds are it is more of an offensive game and they have more weapons.
They are not going to dominate though so this one could be in doubt until late in the game. Hopefully the spread still gives us some value when it is posted.
