This week's Brain Bowl features two large Big 10 schools when Purdue meets Michigan in Ann Arbor. Let's go to the tape:
One year cost of attending:
75th Percentile SAT Scores for Incoming Freshmen:
Purdue: Reading 610 , Math 660, Writing 610
Michigan: Reading 690 Math 740 Writing 710
Percent of Applicants Admitted:
Male-to-Female Ratio (New Feature!!)
Purdue: 41% female, 59% male
Michigan: 50% female, 50% male
OK, so maybe it's not Harvard v Yale, but this is the best we could do on an academic off week. Purdue loses on almost every front: easier admittance standards, more guys than gals, worse football team, and is located in West Lafayette, IN. Although the Boilers have played better recently, I like Michigan in this spot -5 at home. Rodriguez really needs a solid win and this looks like a good place.
Overall Brain Bowl Record 2009: 5-4 (vs spread)
