Hope on Wisconsin

Purdue coach Danny Hope discussed Saturday's opponent, Wisconsin, during his weekly teleconference Tuesday.

"They're a great football team. That's a tough place to play at. They're still the same from a run standpoint where they can come out and get after you with the power run game, they have a great offensive line that's dominant at times and loaded with good running backs. That part of them hasn't changed offensively.

They now have a new weapon, a very good passing attack. Their quarterback (Russell Wilson) is one of the top efficiency-rated quarterbacks in the country, maybe number one. He was right up there. Average about 250 yards a game, over 200 yards a game from a passing game. Very explosive offensively. Even more so now with the threat of a very good passing game."
