Wisconsin is a 17-point favorite in this one, and everything from recent history to Purdue being Purdue suggests the Badgers will roll in this one. Here's B5Q's Andrew Rosin in his preview from Wednesday:

"Purdue is spry. Saturday, the Boilermakers do get homefield advantage as the Wisconsin Badgers get themselves yet another morning football game. They need a win here to keep their bowl hopes alive. Will they get it?

Since Austin Appleby took over the starting quarterback job, Purdue's been better at moving the ball. The Boilermakers stood toe-to-toe with Michigan State, and if we're being honest, they probably should have beaten Minnesota. Sure, Nebraska was able to mostly stonewall the offense. But with Appleby, you can't just beat this offense by merely showing up.

Akeem Hunt is still the running back, and as a senior, we know who he is: shifty, with good hands out of the backfield. But Nebraska shut him down for 21 carries and 66 yards, and with Wisconsin's front seven being much better than Nebraska's on a per-play basis (Nebraska's 41st at 3.74, Wisconsin's tied for eighth at 3.08), Hunt is likely to face some tough sledding,

The good news? Purdue hasn't been trying to get aggressive down the field, unless you have a defense that's Illinois-bad. Appleby's last three games had him go 58-of-109 for 580 yards; that's good for 5.32 yards per attempt and an obvious 10 yards per completion. This fits with the Boilermakers' style when Danny Etling was under center: keep it short, keep it horizontal. Purdue's 126th in yards per attempt."
