The Iowa Hawkeyes will play the Purdue Boilermakers in a Big Ten Conference Game on Saturday night at Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette, Indiana.

The Iowa Hawkeyes are 4-4 (2-3) this season after they defeated Northwestern by a score of 33-13 in their last game. Iowa held Northwestern to 177 total yards and forced one turnover in the win. The Iowa offense is averaging 16.4 points per game with 155.1 passing yards per game and 93.5 rushing yards per game. Spencer Petras has thrown for 1,209 yards, three touchdowns, and five interceptions for the Hawkeyes this season. Kaleb Johnson (questionable) has rushed for 353 yards and three touchdowns, while Sam LaPorta has caught 41 passes for 387 yards for Iowa. The Iowa defense is giving up 15.8 points per game and 265.6 yards per game.

The Purdue Boilermakers are 5-3 (3-2) this season after they lost to Wisconsin by a score of 35-24 in their last game. Purdue fell behind 21-0 in the first quarter and was not able to recover for the loss. The Purdue offense is averaging 32.8 points per game with 314.3 passing yards per game and 130.4 rushing yards per game. Aidan O’Connell has thrown for 2,270 yards, 15 touchdowns, and eight interceptions for the Boilermakers this season. Devin Mockobee has rushed for 561 yards and six scores, while Charlie Jones has caught 72 passes for 840 yards and nine touchdowns for Purdue. The Purdue defense is allowing 25.5 points per game and 353.1 yards per game.

Iowa is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS win. The over is 7-2 in Iowa’s last 9 conference games. Purdue is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a bye week. The over is 7-1 in Purdue’s last 8 home games. The road team is 10-2 ATS in these two teams last 12 head to head meetings.

Iowa is coming off of a nice win against Northwestern, while Purdue is coming off of a loss to Wisconsin, where they looked terrible to start the game. Iowa’s offense is one of the worst in the country, but their defense is only allowing 15.8 points per game. Purdue has a high-powered offense, but a poor a defense. I like Iowa with the points in this game, as I think this is a bad matchup for Purdue.
