WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - One win has kept hope alive at Purdue.
Two more and the Boilermakers could go down as the nation's most improbable bowl-eligible team.
A year ago, they needed to win two of their last three regular-season games to snap a three-year bowl drought. They did.
Now, if they can win their next two and finish the regular season on a three-game winning streak, they would likely go to a bowl game for a second straight year.
Saturday's 27-24 victory at Iowa not only gave Purdue (4-6, 1-5) respite, but a whole new perspective on this season.
Suddenly, the Boilermakers are talking about winning at Illinois (2-8, 0-6) this weekend and again when rival Indiana (4-6, 2-5) visits Ross-Ade Stadium the following weekend in the annual Old Oaken Bucket game.
