Week 12 at Purdue

Sam Land

Wisconsin barely beat Purdue last season in Madison. They are likely in for another difficult test in what should be a crazy atmosphere at Ross-Ade Stadium, as Boilermaker fans are energized by their program’s resurgence and the Badgers coming to town will be one of the highlights on their schedule. Wisconsin’s offense will be too much for Purdue to handle. The Badgers should grind out a win, but the Boilermakers will not make it easy for them.

Wisconsin dominated this game last year but you wouldn’t know it by looking at the score.  The Badgers won 17-9 but outgained Purdue by more than 250 yards.  Three turnovers and the inability to finish drives made this game much closer than it should have been.  Wisconsin will play a cleaner game but Jeff Brohm’s offense will play better as well.  Hornibrook throws for over 300 yards and three touchdowns.  Freshman Jake Ferguson makes a couple of highlight catches that forces Chryst to put Ferguson on the field more.  This game will be a shootout in the first half, but the Badgers D will settle in the second half and come out on top.

Coming off a tough loss, Wisconsin takes their frustrations out on Jeff Brohm and the Boilermakers.

The resurgent Boilermakers host the Badgers in an afternoon slugfest as they look to play spoilers on the Badgers splendid season. Thankfully, Hornibrook finds his targets and the defense makes some timely turnovers.

Jeff Brohm has Purdue trending in the right direction. Getting Wisconsin at home late in the season, after a big game for the Badgers, is a prime trap game scenario. Wisconsin has to be sure they didn’t use all their offensive tricks against Penn State. They’ll have to score to beat the Boilermakers.
