The Boilermakers and the Fighting Irish are truly two totally different teams in this year, and the end result of this game just isn’t going to be all that pretty. Purdue is a 4-5 team that has no chance of dancing this year. The schedule really hasn’t been all that tough either, and home losses to Bucknell and Xavier, along with a road loss against Eastern Michigan really don’t sit well. Meanwhile, Notre Dame has played an eclectic schedule that has included some dud games like the ones against Chicago State and Brown, but some massive games against teams like Kentucky as well. This is going to feel like a home game for the Golden Domers, and against a team that is averaging just 66.6 points per game this year, there is no reason to think that this is going to be anything less than a double digit victory for a far superior Notre Dame outfit. There will just be no answers to anything that the Fighting Irish pull out of their hats, and the No. 22 team in the land will take another stride in the right direction on Saturday.
