Breaking down and analyzing the 2019 Purdue Boilermakers football schedule.
2019 Purdue Boilermakers Football Schedule Analysis
– It’s one of the toughest non-conference runs anyone in the Big Ten has to deal with. Nevada is no pushover – it’ll be good enough to contend for the Mountain West title – and the game is in Reno. Follow that up with Vanderbilt and TCU, and even though both games are at home, it’ll be a challenge to get out 3-0.
– There’s a week off before starting the Big Ten season with a home date against Minnesota – the Boilermakers only leave West Lafayette twice from August 31st to November 9th. Nebraska is a home game, but the rest of the East is a big, big, BIG problem, having to go on the road to face Iowa, Northwestern and Wisconsin.
– Going to Penn State from the East makes an already harsh schedule that much tougher, but Maryland and Indiana are the other two interdivisional games. No Michigan, no Michigan State, and no Ohio State – that’s the team’s one big break.
