Notre Dame 38, Purdue 10 -- FINAL
Notre Dame takes on in-state rival Purdue on Saturday night as the Fighting Irish continue what they hope will be a resurgence to their season.
After starting the year at 0-2, the Irish have notched victories over then-nationally ranked Michigan State and, last week, at Pittsburgh.
The former was impressive; the latter was ugly. Nonetheless, they both go into the books as a "W," keeping alive the hope that Notre Dame can run the table and reach a BCS bowl.
Purdue is currently 2-1 and not only has the luxury of playing at home, but also of coming off a bye week. The Boilermakers haven't played since a 59-0 victory over Southeast Missouri State on Sept. 17. The Irish will have to contend with Purdue's rushing attack, which is averaging almost 259 yards a game and is ranked 10th in the country.
