Penn State makes the trip to West Lafayette, IN this weekend to face the purdue boilermakers. purdue has weathered a tough couple years - last year being the pre-season media darling (iowa is this year's purdue) only to falter, and this year they boast an offense which can run all over the field, but a defense that can't keep the opposing teams from doing the same (think 1990s BYU).
Penn State should be able to score points on this team - and hopefully the defense can toughen up. this game should be an easy win for the Lions, but purdue is pesky, and PSU hasn't shown much cohesiveness lately (on or off the field).
As always, I am completely optimistic that Penn State will carry the day and become bowl eligible on Saturday.
