WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Purdue is running out of time to save its season.
The Boilermakers, who entered the season talking about playing for a Big Ten title, have lost their first five conference games and need to win out to become bowl-eligible. Purdue (3-6, 0-5) travels to Iowa on Saturday with its season on the line.
The Boilermakers said they were fired up after the previous week's 44-28 loss at Minnesota and expected a better performance last Saturday against Penn State. Purdue grabbed an early lead against the Nittany Lions before falling apart and losing 34-9.
Purdue has been outscored 189-86 in league games. Coach Danny Hope said the Boilermakers didn't deal with the high expectations well.
