By now we all now what a paycheck game is.
However, for those that may be a little groggy before their morning / afternoon coffee, here’s a bit of a refresher.
A paycheck game in college football is where a clearly inferior opponent heads to an tenacious opponent, gets thrown all over the field and takes a big paycheck home in return for their walloping.
Expect to see just that type of game on Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium, when the Purdue Boilermakers head to Madison to take on the No. 9 Minnesota Golden Gophers.
This one is not going to be pretty.
If the Boilermakers only played one half of football they may not be as bad as everybody thinks.
Unfortunately there are four quarters in college football and the Boilermakers can’t seem to find a way to put together a good second half, evidenced by their performance against Penn State and Nebraska.
The Boilermakers should really on their defense against the Golden Gophers if they want a shot at pulling an upset on the road.
They don’t really have a tenacious offense that can score points in bunches so look for them to try and stuff Minnesota at the line of scrimmage and force them to win the game through the air.
I don’t like Purdue’s shot in this one but will give them a glimmer of hope in making it a close game.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
The Golden Gophers have been sneaky good in 2016.
Not great enough to garner much national attention, but they’re good enough to have the opportunity to secure their destiny in the Big Ten, as they are currently in place to win the West if they win-out, with games against Nebraska and Wisconsin looming on the schedule.
But as with all things college football, you must first look at the game in front of you, and fortunately for the Golden Gophers they will have a great chance to warm their legs against a downtrodden Boilermakers squad.
Unfortunately for the Gophers they will be without their second-leading receiver in this one, as Brian Smith has been dismissed from the team, leaving Minnesota searching for options from a variety of walk-ons.
Still, this is a revived Golden Gophers team and they should have no issues with struggling Purdue.

Purdue is a struggling program.
Their only wins on the season have come against Eastern Kentucky, Nevada, and Illinois. Minnesota, on the other hand, is an up-and-coming power who controls their own destiny in the Big Ten.
This should be a great time for the Golden Gophers to finely tune themselves before taking on Nebraska and Wisconsin.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick:
Without their second-leading wideout the rest of the season Minnesota is going to need to pound the ball and cross their fingers that a walk-on can shine in the stretch-run of their season.
I don’t think that this game will be a complete blowout or even an easy game for the Golden Gophers, but I don’t expect it to be a tight affair either.
Minnesota will come away with a win, albeit one by a closer margin than some may expect.
