The Iowa Hawkeyes have had difficulty solving the Purdue defense in recent years and they will get another chance when the teams meet this weekend in Iowa City. Iowa quarterback Drew says the Boilermaker defense does a good job of keeping you guessing.
Tate says in his years, Purdue and Iowa State usually have the most complex coverages and he says he doesn’t see that chaning. Purdue is giving up more points than usual this season but Tate says lack of experience is the major factor. He says they’re agressive and tough, but have a lot of young guys who aren’t comfortable with the system yet.
Tate says the offense needs to get some momentum and they would like to score early. He says in the last two years they’ve scored a lot on the first drive and he says they need to do that again to set the tempo.
