The Purdue Boilermakers are 3-3 so far into the NCAA football 2017-18 season. They are hanging tough and trying to prove a good challenge to any team who opposes them. On the other hand, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights have had a very poor start to their season. Their offense is weak and defense poor as well. The Scarlet Knights are 2-4 so far into the season and things are not looking well even now.
The Rutgers Scarlet Knights are 2-4. They have had a poor start to the 2017-18 season. The Scarlet Knights, we must not forget, are a new team and this is something along the lines of common expectation.
Kyle Bolin leads the team in passing yards, Gus Edwards leads the team in rushing yards, while Janarion Grant leads the team in receiving yards. These will be the key players in the game against the Boilermakers.
The Purdue Boilermakers are 3-3. This is an improved team we are talking about. The Boilermakers are much better than they ever were. They are only allowing 20.2 points per game and clocking at 246.8 passing yards and 124.5 rushing yards for a total of 371.3 yards per game. Their defense is decent enough for the Scarlet Knights. They are allowing 219.7 passing yards and 175.0 rushing yards for a total of 394.7 allowed yards.
Elijah Sindelar leads the team in passing yards with 769 yards having 6 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Tario Fuller is leading the team in rushing yards with 261 yards sitting on top of 43 carries. He also has 2 touchdowns. As for the receiving yards, the team leader is Anthony Mahoungou with 16 receptions and 1 touchdown on 253 yards.
Receiving game needs to improve. But against the Scarlet Knights, we think that is barely the priority.
