Purdue eager to rebound with Badgers in town



WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- Purdue needs to recover quickly from its blowout loss to Michigan last week.

   The Boilermakers (3-2, 0-1 Big Ten) were crushed 44-13 at home by the Wolverines last Saturday, making this week's game against Wisconsin critical. With Ohio State and Penn State ineligible for the postseason, the winner of Saturday's game becomes the front-runner to win the Leaders Division and advance to the Big Ten title game.

   The Boilermakers face an improving Wisconsin squad that feels it could return to the Big Ten title game after winning it last year. The Badgers (4-2, 1-1) scored just seven points in a loss to Oregon State and 16 points in a win over Utah State, but they are averaging nearly 33 points per contest since.
