BIG TEN FOOTBALL:  Purdue Boilermakers 2008 Season Predictions

Joe Tiller comes into his last season in West Lafayette with seniors Curtis Painter (QB), Kory Sheets and Jaycen Taylor (RB), and Greg Orton (WR) on offense and Anthony Heygood (LB) and Ryan Baker (DT) on defense.  But a tough schedule keeps the Boilermakers from competing for the Big 10 Championship.

Here are my predictions for the 2008 Purdue Boilermakers.


A scrimmage before the Ducks roll into town.

Prediction:  Win (44-10)

9/13    OREGON

Inexperience at quarterback and receiver hurt the Ducks.

Prediction:  Win (31-24)


The last time these two teams met in last season Motor City Bowl it was a shoot out.  Don't expect such a high-scoring affair this time around.

Prediction:  Win (34-21)

9/27    at NOTRE DAME

John Tenuta's defensive game-plan will give Curtis Painter fits.

Prediction:  Loss (28-20)


A battle between two retiring Joes? 

Prediction:  Loss (28-20)

10/11  at OHIO STATE

Joe Tiller can't pull out a victory in his final game against the Scarlet and Gray.

Prediction:  Loss (31-10)


C.J. Bacher outplays Curtis Painter in this thriller in Evanston.

Prediction:  Loss (31-28)


Curtis Painter carves up the Gopher defense.

Prediction:  Win (31-20)


Joe Tiller will pull out all the stops in his final game against the Big Blue.

Prediction:  Win (28-27)


Brian Hoyer has a great game, as the Spartans continue to roll.

Prediction:  Loss (34-28)

11/15  at IOWA

The Hawkeyes give the Boilermakers their best shot.

Prediction:  Win (31-28)

11/22  INDIANA

The Boilermakers will be seeking revenge for last year.  They will send Joe Tiller out with a bang.

Prediction:  Win (34-28)

Final Record: 7-5.  Joe Tiller goes bowling in his final season at the head of the train.  Next season will be much more difficult for the Boilermakers.
