Purdue Head Coach Jeff Brohm previewed the team’s biggest game in years on Thursday and despite a few injuries the team is ready and waiting for the Wolverines to come to town.

After winning a total of nine games in the past four seasons combined, last Saturday’s win over Missouri was Purdue’s first back-to-back wins since 2012. With No. 8 Michigan scheduled to come to West Lafayette and despite being 10-point underdogs, the Big 10 matchup has more hype around it than anyone was expecting.

“It’s going to come down to doing the small things,” Brohm told reporters Thursday. “We are going to have to take some shots and find some one-on-one matchups, eliminate sacks and not turn the ball over at the beginning of the game.”

The last time these two teams matched up it wasn’t pretty. Michigan won 42-13 in 2012, but that was before Purdue hired Jeff Brohm, who Michigan Coach Jim Harbaugh praised earlier this week.

Michigan and Purdue square off at 3:00 p.m. CST in what may be one of the best matchups of the week. The Boilermakers at the very least are ready for their next big test.

“It’s a great opportunity to test ourselves against the very best of the Big 10 and hopefully we can hang in there and give it a good shot,” Brohm added. “At the end of the day, we’ll know exactly where we stand and how far we will have to come.”
