2010 Purdue Football: Game 5

As part of the BS football season preview at the end of August, we'd like the readers of BS to weigh in on the Boilermakers' chances in each of their games. Today, we discuss game 5.

The Boilermakers begin Big Ten play on the road at Northwestern, in likely their only night game of the year. This one will be under the lights and on the Big Ten Network. I don't think this means anyone beyond Northwestern and Purdue fans will be watching, but still, worth noting. Of course, if the Boilers win at UND and then blow out their next three foes, the Boilermakers and Rob Marve could be getting some attention at this point. Which, in most years, is the perfect time for the banana peel. And Northwestern will be more than willing to eat our banana. Wait, what?

Last year, the Boilers blew a 21-3 lead at home in a gut-wrenching, inexcusable loss to a mediocre Cats team. It's time to return the favor. Let's hope the players remember.

What's next?

Oh Billy, you so silly...keep up the good work.
