Looking ahead to Purdue

Coming off a loss to Ohio State, the Nittany Lions are looking to rebound this week against a faltering Purdue squad. Purdue (3-5, 0-4 Big Ten) has lost its first four conference games, including three by double digits.

Penn State (5-3, 3-1) will face a Purdue defense that has struggled. The Boilermakers rank 10th out of 12 teams in scoring defense, surrendering nearly 30 points per game.

Meanwhile, Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin has been one of the best quarterbacks in the Big Ten this season. He has passed for 2,115 yards this season. McGloin’s top target, Allen Robinson, has 52 catches for 631 yards and eight touchdowns. Zach Zwinak leads the running game with 411 yards.
