No. 7 Wisconsin Faces Struggling Purdue Saturday


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- No. 7 Wisconsin will try to stay in the Big Ten football title race Saturday at Purdue.

The Badgers (7-1, 3-1 Big Ten) beat Ohio State and Iowa to position themselves for a shot at possible Big Ten and BCS titles.

The Boilermakers haven't beaten Wisconsin since 2003 and hasn't won a home game against the Badgers since 1997. Wisconsin won 37-0 last year.

Purdue (4-4, 2-2) is coming off losses at Ohio State and Illinois by a combined 93-10. The Boilermakers are prepared for freshman Sean Robinson to start his first game because Rob Henry is recovering from a cut finger.

Wisconsin is concerned about keeping Purdue defensive end Ryan Kerrigan out of its backfield. He leads the conference with 7 1/2 sacks and 18 1/2 tackles for loss.
