What you need to know about Purdue

The Boilermakers had enough points to win and then some against the Iowa Hawkeyes on Saturday, taking their game 24-7. WR David Bell and QB Aidan O’Connell were among the main playmakers for Purdue as the former caught 11 passes for one touchdown and 240 yards and the latter passed for two touchdowns and 375 yards on 40 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown.

Purdue didn’t just beat the No. 2 team in the country last week, it dominated them. The Boilermakers outgained the Hawkeyes 464-273 and won the turnover battle 4-1. Cam Allen had two interceptions in the win and Branson Deen had 1.5 sacks. The victory lead Purdue into the AP Top 25 for the first time this year as it enters Saturday ranked No. 25.

What you need to know about Wisconsin

Meanwhile, even if it wasn’t a dominant performance, Wisconsin beat the Army West Point Black Knights 20-14 on Saturday. Among those leading the charge for Wisconsin was RB Braelon Allen, who rushed for one TD and 107 yards on 16 carries.

The Wisconsin defense limited a potent Army rushing attack to just 3.6 yards per carry in the win last week. The Badgers are now allowing just 64.3 rushing yards per game and 4.0 yards per play defensively. But Wisconsin will have to start generating more turnovers to make up for the fact that they’ve given the ball away 15 times this season and only created four takeaways of their own.
