OUR PREDICTION: This one should be a shootout. The over is 4-0 in the Cardinals' last four games in September, is 9-3 in their last 12 games on fieldturf, and is 4-1 in the Boilermakers' last five games overall. Purdue doesn't have the defensive front to slow down Lamar Jackson, who should torch the Boilermaker defense on the fast track of Lucas Oil Stadium.
