The 2011 Little Caesars Pizza Bowl (formerly the Motor City Bowl) will have some interesting things we need to watch for when the Western Michigan Broncos (7-5) meet the Purdue Boilermakers (6-6) in a MAC-Big Ten showdown.
Purdue has not fared well recently in bowl games and WMU has yet to win one (0-4).
The Boilermakers also have a lot on the line from a recruiting standpoint. They haven’t represented their program and institution in a bowl game since 2007, so a win would go a long way in bringing in talented recruits to West Lafayette.
For the Broncos, they get a chance to notch a huge win against a Big Ten school and finally get that first bowl win.
