Game Preview

This game is a huge opportunity for Rutgers to gain some real momentum and prove real progress is happening this season. Purdue is much improved, but certainly a beatable opponent. It’s homecoming on campus and the crowd should be into the game from the opening kickoff. Hopefully, Rutgers can come out fast and take control of the game early on. Expect offensive coordinator Jerry Kill to try and control the line of scrimmage and time of possession with the run game. Purdue’s offense will surely attack through the air and test the Rutgers defense to stop them. It’s a contrast in styles and each team’s strengths are the other’s weaknesses. It should be an interesting game. Let’s hope Rutgers can begin their first ever Big Ten winning streak today!
