What you need to know about Purdue

The Boilermakers had enough points to win and then some against the Iowa Hawkeyes on Saturday, taking their game 24-7. WR David Bell and QB Aidan O'Connell were among the main playmakers for Purdue as the former caught 11 passes for one touchdown and 240 yards and the latter passed for two touchdowns and 375 yards on 40 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown.

Purdue didn't just beat the No. 2 team in the country last week, it dominated them. The Boilermakers outgained the Hawkeyes 464-273 and won the turnover battle 4-1. Cam Allen had two interceptions in the win and Branson Deen had 1.5 sacks. The victory lead Purdue into the AP Top 25 for the first time this year as it enters Saturday ranked No. 25.

What you need to know about Wisconsin

Wisconsin has struggled against the spread this season with a 2-4 ATS mark. The Badgers beat Army last week, but failed to cover as 14-point favorites. They've only covered once in their last four games. 

But the Badgers still have a rugged defense that makes life tough on opponents, giving up just 19.3 points per game. Quarterback Graham Mertz has struggled with his accuracy (55.6 percent) and has thrown seven interceptions this season. Because of that, Wisconsin has leaned on the ground game, and Chez Mellusi is leading the way on the ground with a 112-543-3 rushing line.
