Undefeated Badgers To Host Improved Purdue Team

The undefeated Wisconsin Badgers will host a Purdue team on Saturday that's improving with its new head coach Jeff Brohm.

The Boilermakers bring a 3-2 record into Camp Randall Stadium, and they're 1-1 in Big Ten after a 31-17 victory against Minnesota last weekend. Purdue has already matched its win totals from last year in both overall and conference play -- and Badgers' coach Paul Chryst says Brohm has revamped a Purdue offense that will keep the U-W defense on its toes throughout the entire field. The Boilermakers are averaging five more points a game this year with almost 30, while giving up eight fewer points each week with 21. The seventh ranked Badgers lead the Big Ten West Division at 2-0, with an overall mark of 5-0.
