Latest Purdue football news

Before getting to Nebraska, the Boilermakers will have to defeat Wisconsin.

It’s almost Purdue basketball season

Purdue basketball is one month away. The Boilermakers hope you haven’t forgot about that, and in case you have, here’s a reminder:

Purdue opens its 2017-18 season on Friday, Nov. 10, against Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville. Then the Boilermakers play Chicago State at home on Nov. 12 in what is technically the start of the Battle 4 Atlantis, a preseason tournament that will take place in the Bahamas later that month.

Bowl projection has Purdue playing LSU on New Year’s Day

Purdue is enjoying a swift turnaround folliwng its disastrous 2016 season, which saw the Boilermakers finish 3-9 with only one Power 5 win. Now, Purdue is on track to qualify for a bowl game if it continues on its current pace.

Playing in a bowl game would be significant progress for Purdue, but CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm isn’t pegging the Boilermakers for just any bowl. Palm’s latest projection, released Sunday after the Week 6 games, has Purdue playing LSU in the Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day in Tampa, Fla.

That’s a marked turnaround for Purdue (3-2), which has been in the Big Ten cellar since finishing 6-7 and making the Heart of Dallas Bowl in 2012. The Boilermakers already have topped their Vegas over/under for wins, which was set at 2.5 before the season. They’ve yet to dispatch a great team, but Saturday’s win over Minnesota was a step in the right direction. Both losses came against ranked teams: Louisville and Michigan.

LSU has been underwhelming in Ed Orgeron’s first season as head coach, so this wouldn’t be the mismatch many would have predicted before the season.

And sure, these are projections in October, more than two months before bowl season kicks off. This matchup probably won’t end up happening, but there’s no harm in thinking about the possibility.

Jeff Brohm explains how he honored Joe Tiller on Purdue’s first play vs. Minnesota

Former coach Joe Tiller, who died Sept. 30,  was a pioneer on the offensive side of the ball during his tenure at Purdue. One of his favorite plays was the bubble screen, where an inside receiver drifts outside after the snap and catches the ball near the line of scrimmage, ideally with blockers taking out the defensive backs in his path.

“I wish it had got more yards, but yes it was [a tribute to Tiller].”

“I don’t even think I told anybody,” Brohm said. “I don’t even think our staff knew why I wanted to run it, but I did want to try to sneak in a bubble screen right off the bat in honor of coach Tiller.”

However, Minnesota lined up in a defense built to handle a bubble screen well. The bubble screen is a play built to take advantage of a defense that is concentrated between the tackles, but that’s not what Purdue faced on the opening play.

“I thought it would get more yards,” Brohm said. “When we lined up it was an empty set and they walked everyone out with no linebackers in the box area. I’m like, ‘OK, that’s not really the look I thought we’d get,’ but we did it anyway and we moved on to second down.”
