Purdue shows steady progress at a pivotal time
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue coach Darrell Hazell likes what he’s seeing from his football team.
The Boilermakers seem to be on board with what the second-year head coach is trying to accomplish and they’ve developed a team bond that has helped them progress of late.
Now, Purdue looks to take it another step further Saturday at Minnesota.
It’s a pivotal weekend for the Boilermakers. A win over the Golden Gophers would be Purdue’s fourth and two away from bowl eligibility. The opportunity to make one is there, too, with games in November at home against Northwestern before the season finale at Indiana.
But first, Hazell says Purdue has to figure out how to close out more games.
