Nebraska (3-5) and Purdue (4-3) meet for just the 9th time in series history since Nebraska joined the B1G in July 2011 from the Big 12.

Despite the troubles the Cornhuskers have had in Scott Frost’s fourth year as head coach, the FPI gives Nebraska a 74.9 % chance to win against Purdue this weekend.

The series has been very close in the nine times these two teams have played. Nebraska leads the series by just one game with a 5-4 record all-time against the Boilermakers. The Cornhuskers won last years’ meeting by a score of 37-27 in West Lafayette.

Both teams have struggled to have any consistency this season.

Purdue got off to a 3-1 start. Then, the Boilermakers lost to Minnesota in Week 5, upset No. 2 Iowa in week 6 and lost to Wisconsin after a bye week to fall out of the Top 25.

Nebraska had a similar start to the season. The Cornhuskers started the year 2-1, and have gone 1-4 in their last five games. However, in that stretch the losses have all been by seven points or fewer, so they could very well be 5-0.

We’ll see who will come out on top as Nebraska and Purdue meet Saturday at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln on ESPN2 at 3:30 p.m. ET.
