It’s senior day at Ross-Ade Stadium. The Purdue seniors look to add to the special occasion.
With a win, the Boilermakers (5-5, 3-3 Big Ten) will be bowl eligible for the first time since 2007.
Purdue faces an Iowa squad that has dropped two of its last three games. The Hawkeyes lost to Minnesota and Michigan State. In between, Iowa (6-4, 3-3) defeated then No. 13 Michigan.
Iowa has a balanced offensive attack. Marvin McNutt is one of the top wide receivers in the Big Ten. He is averaging 108.9 receiving yards per game. Quarterback James Vandenberg has thrown for 2,351 yards this season. Running back Marcus Coker is second in the league in rushing, averaging 115.8 rushing yards per game.
