Here's Purdue coach Danny Hope's take on Minnesota. The teams meet at noon Saturday in West Lafayette.
"They're a big football team. They have a big offensive line. They do an outstanding job executing their zone blocking schemes, they do an excellent job of timing it up as far as when and how they fit up on the down man and when and how they come off with the linebackers. Tough running backs, they have a lot of skill players, they have good size and good speed. They're very good in special teams," Hope said.
"I think our football team is very good in special teams, and I think they match up with us very well from a special teams standpoint. I think they're a very dangerous football team."
