Purdue football ended it's post season schedule, suffering an embarrassing 31 to 21 loss at the hands of the Toledo Rockets of the Mid American Conference. This puts the Boilermakers at .500 for the non-conference as they suffered an early season loss against the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.
Not only has Purdue lost half their games, but it seems as though they have lost half their key players to ACL injuries. Robert Boldin, Keith Smith, and Robert Marve all have suffered this fate throughout the summer, and the season. The latest of which being Robert Marve. Marve will be a significant loss, and will force back-up Rob Henry to lead the team.
Purdue will now move on to the meat of the schedule. The Big Ten is loaded this year, featuring six of the top 25 teams in the nation, including the number two team in the nation, Ohio State. This article will explore and predict the remaining schedule of the Boilermakers.
