How to watch the Purdue basketball schedule
Purdue basketball schedules are a bit different than the rest of the Big Ten.
The Big Ten has a few games against teams that are a different caliber, like Michigan State, Wisconsin and Ohio State.
However, Purdue has games against Wisconsin, Northwestern, Michigan and Michigan State.
Those games usually are very important to the success of the Boilermakers.
The Purdue schedule has three games against ranked teams.
Those three games are at home, at Iowa, at Wisconsin and at Nebraska.
The only games against power five opponents are a non-conference series against Iowa, Northwestern and Iowa State.
These are some of the key games on the Purdue schedule.
Here is a look at Purdue’s upcoming games against Power Five teams.
Purdue games against Michigan State The Boilermaker is coming off of back-to-back wins against Michigan and Illinois.
The Boilers have been on the losing end of a number of close games.
In the past two seasons, Purdue hasn’t beaten a ranked team at home.
This season Purdue has lost four straight games to Michigan and two to Illinois.
Michigan is the best team in the Big 10, so it should be easy to overcome a tough road trip.
Purdue has a great defensive effort and should be able to beat Michigan State in its final home game of the season on Saturday.
Michigan State is coming into this season having won five straight at home against the Boilers.
Purdue should be ready to bounce back.
This is the last game of Purdue’s season, so a win would put the Boilers in a position to clinch the Big 20 regular season title.
Purdue vs. Iowa State On Saturday, Purdue will play host to the Hawkeyes.
The teams have not played each other since 2013, but the Boils are expected to get revenge after losing to Iowa State in the 2017 NCAA Tournament.
Purdue lost to Iowa in the NCAA Tournament in the first round.
The game will be a rematch of a series between the Boiled and the Hawkeye.
The Hawkeyes were expected to beat Purdue in the 2015 Big Ten Tournament.
However Iowa beat Purdue for the first time in the season last year and ended up with a 19-15 win.
The loss was a huge blow to Purdue as it is expected to be the Big East champions this season.
This will be Purdue’s first meeting with Iowa since they were swept by Michigan State last season.
Iowa has a tough schedule to beat.
Iowa is coming in off of a bye week.
The Cyclones are coming off their second consecutive Big Ten title.
They have a bye this week, so that could help Purdue with its game against Iowa State this weekend.
Michigan vs. Wisconsin The Wolverines are expected in the conference tournament and are in the midst of a big recruiting push.
Michigan will be looking to bounce right back from a disappointing season.
Michigan won its first four games against Iowa before losing to Northwestern in the Sweet 16.
Michigan has lost its last four games at home to Iowa.
Michigan needs to win this game at home in order to secure the Big Eight regular season championship.
Purdue’s game against Wisconsin is also expected to help the Big Blue.
The two teams are a combined 9-16.
Purdue will be in a tight spot against Wisconsin this season after losing at Wisconsin last season in the tournament.
The Badgers will be playing without two of their top five scorers.
Purdue is expected a very strong team.
Wisconsin is a team that should be favored to win the Big 12 tournament.
However Wisconsin is expected in a tough conference tournament with a strong resume.
Purdue could make a deep run this season if it wins this game.
Iowa vs. Nebraska The Huskers have been ranked in the top 25 for the past three seasons.
Nebraska is expected with the second best record in the country.
This rivalry game will help Nebraska’s chances in the upcoming tournament.
Nebraska’s season started with a big upset win against Iowa in Madison.
After that upset win, Nebraska went on a seven game winning streak and was ranked in first place.
Nebraska will be coming off a win against Michigan, which they lost to in the opening round of the NCAA tournament.
If Nebraska wins the Huskers home game against Purdue, it would be the first game between the two teams in more than two decades.
This game could be a huge indicator of how good the Huskies are going to be this season in conference play.
Wisconsin vs. Purdue It is also possible that the Badgers could be in for a tough matchup against Purdue this season as well.
Wisconsin will be on a bye and is expected at least to finish with a winning record.
Wisconsin has lost nine straight games against Purdue and is in the process of finishing the season with a losing record.
The Huskies have lost their last two games at Purdue, which is a testament to how much Wisconsin has struggled.
This could be the start of Wisconsin’s winning streak against Purdue.
Iowa versus Northwestern The Badger-Cuellar rivalry game is scheduled to kick off Saturday at 1:30 p.m.
