The problem with that is this: they'll both be Friday night games at TCF, in similarish conditions, one week apart. Purdue's early win with no home crowd advantage this year then shows that these teams are very close.Well, that's exactly what happened two years ago. Purdue beat Iowa 38-36 on November 3rd. Iowa beat Minnesota handily earlier in the season. Two weeks after Purdue beat Iowa, Minnesota absolutely hammered Purdue.
And will we be fired up to get a win, or will we be brow beaten and hungover from Iowa's beating? Either of those concepts could be a factor, either way.
