Last game: 28-26 win vs. Florida Atlantic
Next game: Oct. 1 @ #21 Minnesota
One week after a heartbreaking loss against undefeated Syracuse in Week 3, the Boilermakers struggled against Florida Atlantic in West Lafayette. Barely pulling out a victory by just two points, Purdue now has to turn focus to undefeated, and now ranked, Minnesota on the road to restart Big Ten play.
The biggest struggle for the Boilermakers is the health of quarterback, Aidan O’Connell, who missed the matchup against the Owls in Week 4 and his availability for Week 4 is up in the air. The only chance Purdue has to compete with the top teams in the Big Ten is if O’Connell is healthy and putting up numbers offensively.
