For starters

The Bucket, and much more, is on the line today as Indiana meets Purdue.

The Boilermakers (5-6, 2-5 Big Ten) become bowl eligible with a win. Purdue hasn't been bowl eligible in consecutive years since 2006-07. Purdue beat IU last year to gain bowl eligibility.

The Hoosiers (4-7, 2-5) look to end a year of progress on a positive note. Quarterback Cameron Coffman is coming off a 454-yard passing performance in a loss at Penn State.

The game could come down to Indiana's passing offense against Purdue's pass defense. The Hoosiers lead the Big Ten in passing offense, averaging 307.8 yards per game. Purdue ranks 40th nationally in pass defense.

The Boilermakers could find success on offense running against the Hoosiers. IU ranks last in the Big Ten in rushing defense, allowing 235.5 yards per game.
