The Purdue Boilermakers versus the Northwestern Wildcats is a “sneaky meaningful” and “sneaky compelling” game.
All season long we’ve heard about how each program is moving in a certain direction. And that would be in opposite directions. There is no doubt that Purdue has improved this season; but how much? If they think they’ve really surpassed Northwestern in the Big Ten pecking order, now is the time to prove it. And for all the cries about the decline of Northwestern’s program this season, (and going back to last year too) the big upset in South Bend this past Saturday halted that talk.Follow paulmbanks
