On Saturday, Purdue is working to deliver the first upset of Week 12 to No. 11 Michigan State. In East Lansing, the Spartans find themselves looking at a 28-13 deficit midway through the third quarter.
Boilermakers quarterback Rob Henry is moving the ball well through the air, having completed 10 of 14 passes for 100 yards and two touchdowns. Purdue's running game has been especially dominant, as five different Boilermakers have taken the ball for a total of 166 yards on the ground. Keith Carlos is responsible for Purdue's first score, an 80-yard gallop into the end zone.
Michigan State managed to stay undefeated through its first eight games this season. A loss to Iowa in Week 9 sent them tumbling a few spots down the rankings. A loss to Purdue -- an unranked 4-6 team that has lost its last four games by a combined 154-39 score -- would surely send them tumbling further.
