Wisconsin looks to keep rolling against Purdue and keep their conference championship hopes alive.
A very important final stretch for the Wisconsin Badgers continues on the road against the Purdue Boilermakers. Not only is the Big Ten West title on the line for Wisconsin, but possibility a spot in the College Football Playoff as well.
Wisconsin’s running game has been rolling in recent weeks and certainly has been hitting its stride. In the past five games, the Badgers are averaging 235.8 yards per game and Corey Clement has been a big part of that. On the season, Clement averages 103.1 yards per game and 4.3 yards per carry. But in the past five games, Clement has returned to his old form we have all been waiting for averaging 121.8 per game five touchdowns to bring his total on the year to 10.

The Badgers are fourth in the Big Ten in rushing offense and they should be able to keep rolling against a Purdue rush defense that is second to last in the conference by giving up 248.8 yards per game. In fact, Purdue ranks at the bottom or towards the bottom of the Big Ten in most of the major statistical categories this season.
This looks to be another week in which Wisconsin is able to score a lot of points and be very successful on the ground.
