IOWA CITY, Iowa — Purdue football is fresh off a bye week and faces the task of playing No. 2 Iowa on the road Saturday. The undefeated Hawkeyes are rightfully being recognized as one of the top teams in the nation after taking down a highly-ranked Penn State team last week.
So far, the 3-2 Boilermakers have lost to Notre Dame and Minnesota. They will be without starting running back Zander Horvath once again, and cornerback Cory Trice will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury. Fortunately, tight end Payne Durham is expected to make his return to the field after missing the team's last game due to a concussion.
Here's how to watch Purdue's game with Iowa, with gametime and TV information, the latest on the point spread and key info on the coaches and the game.
