Purdue was close, but no cigar last Friday when they dropped a 34-31 battle to Minnesota.

The Boilermakers will look to bounce back against Rutgers on Saturday afternoon, and while the Scarlet Knights are the clear underdog, they will be looking to bounce back from their triple-overtime loss to Michigan.

Purdue was sparked by quarterback Jack Plummer’s three-touchdown, 367 yard performance against the Gophers, but fell short on a last-minute controversial pass interference call.

Offense should be at a premium this week, as Purdue and Rutgers have combined for 974 yards during their previous games.

Their emotional loss against the Gophers will certainly be a motivating factor against Rutgers, but the Boilermakers released a new hype-video to get the ball rolling.

Purdue and Rutgers kickoff at 3:00PM in West Lafayette.
