WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Purdue's big plans for this season haven't turned out so well.
Three games into the Big Ten schedule, the Boilermakers are still looking for their first conference win.
Michigan and Wisconsin routed Purdue at home, and on Saturday, the Boilermakers suffered their toughest loss of the season - giving up a touchdown and a 2-point conversion in the last 8 seconds of regulation before eventually losing 29-22 at Ohio State.
Coach Danny Hope has reminded his team that if it can get things turned around this weekend at Minnesota, they can still salvage an eight-win season.
