Sandra Dukes-US PRESSWIRE

Sitting at 3-6 and riding a five-game losing streak, the Purdue Boilermakers are faced with the daunting task of winning out just to make a bowl game. Such a finish will be challenging, especially since they still have two road games to go.

But when you take a closer look at the Makers' schedule in 2012, it's clear that they have a very real chance to run the table.

The six teams that have beaten Purdue this season have a combined record of 42-13, whereas the three squads left on the slate are a paltry 10-17.
