The Foster Farms Bowl will be a matchup featuring two completely different styles. Arizona averaged 41.8 points per game this season, leading the Pac-12 in scoring. Versatile quarterback Khalil Tate is the catalyst in a high-powered rushing attack.
Purdue, on the other hand, has relied heavily on its defense all season. The Boilers allowed just 19.3 points per game on the year, ranking fourth in the B1G. They’ve only allowed 30 points or more once this season.
The Foster Farms Bowl is scheduled for Dec. 27 and will start at 8:30 p.m. ET. The game will be aired on FOX.
Purdue leads the all-time series against Arizona 2-0.
