Purdue coach Joe Tiller says he does not like playing teams on senior day but the Boilermakers will do just that for the second straight week when they visit the Iowa Hawkeyes this weekend. Purdue is 3-7 overall and 1-5 in the Big Ten after a 21-7 loss at Michigan State.
Tiller says they expect Iowa to be emotionally charged after the big win last week over Penn State. Tiller says last week’s victory over Penn State is proof that the Hawks are hitting their stride. He says Shon Green is in great form and quarterback Rick Stanzi is managing the game well, while he says they are back to playing "Iowa style defense." He says that’s a physical style of football.
The Boilermakers won last year’s matchup 31-6 but Tiller says this is a much better Iowa team that is confident in what they are doing.
