Bordeaux vs Northwestern game preview
Why will Purdue win?
The defense is much better than it showed against Ohio State.
The Buckeyes are number one in college football in terms of scoring and yards—they do it against everyone else. Bordeaux still raised yards and points in the second half to get at least some good practice.
He scored just a little bit against Northwestern and that’s it.
The Wildcats struggle on offense, but defense is a huge problem. Purdue doesn’t really work, but it should be able to do it without a problem, and the midrange pass attack should explode.

Why would Northwestern win?
No, Purdue doesn’t really run the ball.
You’ve had the worst running game in the Big Ten – that’s because you throw it – and you don’t usually explode. They come in with plenty of yards, but they’re all mid-range throws — the Northwestern defense should be able to handle that a bit.
As much as the Wildcats struggle, that’s in part because they’ve faced Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota and Michigan over the past month. Purdue has a defense, but Northwestern’s passing game is good enough to keep things moving and control the pace of the game.

What will happen
It’s like a bowl game in Northwestern. It’s actually more like setting up 3-7 Wildcats, making the road trip to play at Wrigley Field for a quirky game that might just be kind of an odd setup to shake off Purdue a bit.
Boilermaker’s offense should be able to keep the attack going well enough — he’s passed over 200 yards per game — to make the Northwestern press.
Northwestern needs Purdue to explode from the inside, which isn’t going to happen.
