Saturday November 19th, 2016

Conventional wisdom from college football analysts would tell you that Wisconsin needs to run the table to make the College Football Playoff. 

That goal starts Saturday when the Badgers play their last road game of the season against Purdue.

Wisconsin will rely on ball-controlled offense, which leads the nation, and a strong running game, led by Corey Clement (928 yards, 10 TDs). The Badgers also boast a good defense, which is ranked fifth in the NCAA.

The Badgers defense only allows 12.7 points per game and has given up over 20 points once this season.

Purdue (3–7, 1–6) has lost five games in a row, including a 45–17 rout at the hands of Northwestern last week. The Boilermakers are 0-4 since interim coach Gerad Parker took over for Darrell Hazell, who was fired last month.

The Badgers have beaten Purdue 10 straight times.
