Purdue looks for confidence vs Iowa
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue is making progress. The Boilermakers already have won twice – one more than in 2013 – and have beaten an FBS school, something they did not achieve during coach Darrell Hazell’s first season as head coach.
When Iowa comes to West Lafayette on Saturday, Purdue has a big chance to win its first Big Ten game in the Hazell era and to achieve that milestone on homecoming.
Hazell made no attempt to downplay this game’s significance on Tuesday.
Since a 38-17 loss on Sept. 6 to Central Michigan, Purdue has played well in a 30-14 loss to unbeaten Notre Dame and then scored the game’s first 25 points Saturday in a 35-13 victory against previously unbeaten Southern Illinois
