Purdue Boilermakers vs. Northern Illinois Huskies Complete Game Preview
Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports
Purdue fans will be out in full force during homecoming.

With the blowout loss to the Wisconsin Badgers last Saturday, the Purdue Boilermakers’ record dropped to 1-3 on the season.

Saying they could use a win against the Northern Illinois Huskies this Saturday would be an understatement of epic proportions.

They need one in the worst way.

The two teams have faced off once before, a 28-21 Northern Illinois victory in 2009.

That NIU team was led by the 2012 Mr. Irrelevant.

This one is led by a dark horse for the Heisman.

In any case, Purdue will be returning this week to the friendly confines of Ross-Ade Stadium—during homecoming, no less—a place where they’ve always got a shot.

Here’s what you need to know for the game.

Place: Ross-Ade Stadium, West Lafayette, Ind.

TV: ESPN 2, WatchESPN (online)

Radio: XM Station 192, SIRI 138
