Why Purdue Will Win
Throw on the Wisconsin secondary, and don’t stop.
Nebraska’s Adrian Martinez was able to hit play after play against the Badgers … but he only threw it 23 times in last week’s 37-21 loss. He was able to bomb away for 220 yards – averaging close to ten yards per throw – but he wasn’t able to connect enough.
Aidan O’Connell won’t have any issues throwing – a lot.
Thrown into the mix with Elijah Sindelar and Jack Plummer out hurt, the freshman winged it 50 times for 271 yards and two scores in the win over Northwestern two weeks ago.
He’s not much of a runner – Martinez gave the Badger D fits – but he’s got the young receivers to spread the ball around to. Wisconsin’s secondary might only give up 154 yards per game, but last year it had a solid pass D, too, and it got hit for almost 400 yards in the wild 47-44 win over the Boilermakers.
Fortunately for the Badgers last season …
Why Wisconsin Will Win
Jonathan Taylor had a DAY.
The best runner after three seasons in NCAA history – passing Herschel Walker last week for career rushing yards as a junior – put the Badgers on his back last season, running 33 times for 321 yards and three scores, averaging close to ten yards per carry.
As a freshman, he rumbled for 219 yards averaging over seven yards per pop in the win over the Boilermakers.
How much is the Purdue defensive front struggling? It allowed over 250 rushing yards to Northwestern.
This isn’t a bad Boilermaker D, but the Wisconsin running game picked it back up after the debacle against Ohio State, coming up with two straight 300-yard days helped by an O line that’s playing well at just the right time.
And then there’s the matter of …
What’s Going To Happen
Wisconsin has won 13 in a row in the series and 15 of the last 17.
Purdue has been competitive over the last two years, and these two have played some classics in the not-too-distant past, but the Badgers need to win to set up a showdown with Minnesota for the Big Ten West title next week.
It’ll have problems with the Boilermaker passing attack early on, but the formula will kick in. In the final home game of the year. Wisconsin will go out doing what it does best and pound away for another 300-yard rushing day.
