If Purdue wants to win the Leaders Division, it must win today's game against Wisconsin.
The contest begins at noon at Ross-Ade Stadium.
Offensively, the Boilermakers (3-2, 0-1 Big Ten) need a good game from quarterback Caleb TerBush. He threw for 105 yards and one interception in last week's 44-13 loss to Michigan.
Robert Marve returned from a knee injury and played in the third and fourth quarter. He could see some action again today.
Purdue's running game also has to improve. The Boilermakers had just 56 rushing yards against the Wolverines. Ralph Bolden is expected to get some playing time today. He has yet to play this year as he recovers from a knee injury suffered late last season.
Defensively, the Boilermakers have to stop the run. That is something the team didn't do last week when Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson rushed for 235 yards.
Running back Montee Ball has 569 rushing yards for the Badgers (4-2, 1-1).
