The Badgers have not had this many losses in a season since 2013. They do not have much to play for at this point after last week’s loss to Penn State. This is a down year for sure.
Purdue has had an interesting season of highs and lows for sure. They still need one more win and there is no way that Wisconsin is going to roll over for them. They are going to have to earn it.
After losing at home to BYU we knew this was not going to be an awesome season for the Badgers. They have dropped two of three with Alex Hornibrook out due to concussion. It is not clear when he will return.
No matter who is at quarterback the Badgers will be able to run the ball. Jonathan Taylor and a monster offensive line see to that. The balance allows for more big plays though, on the ground and occasionally through the air.
Wisconsin is usually one of the more dominant defensive teams in the country but this season they have merely been a little above average. That change has really slimmed their margin and we have seen the results of that in the win column.
Purdue put up a clunker last week. I am not saying they should have dominated Minnesota but losing like they did was disappointing for a program that has been very exciting this season. This is a chance to get the win they need for a bowl. .
Offensively the Boilermakers should be able to move the ball against Wisconsin and hopefully create some big plays. They have some athletes on offense that are special and might be able to outrun fundamentally sound play.
The Boilermakers have been just terrible against the pass defensively but that probably won’t hurt them too much in this matchup They will have to be solid against the run though. They usually do not give up too much there.

This would have been an awesome preseason play because you probably could have got Purdue at something like +17. A lot has changed.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Purdue -4.5
Look for Purdue to have success by mixing it up on offense. Their own defense will get some key stops too.
This should be a feisty game with both teams coming off less than exciting performances. Lots to prove in the Big Ten West.
