Indiana vs. Purdue odds heading into game week

The Old Oaken Bucket is on the line between two teams that have been a bit of a disappointment in 2021.

The Old Oaken Bucket is on the line as the Indiana Hoosiers face the Purdue Boilermakers in West Lafayette, IN on Saturday, November 27th at 3:30 p.m. ET. The game is scheduled to air on FS1.

After a dream season in 2020, injuries and attrition are why Indiana is just 2-9 so far. Going from the Outback Bowl to this is a free fall, but head coach Tom Allen understands that the challenge of playing in one of college football’s toughest conferences makes sustainable winning in Bloomington a challenge.

Purdue has played the giant killer this entire season, knocking off Iowa and Michigan State to end their undefeated runs by multiple scores. At 7-4 it’s been a roller coaster ride, but their ceiling under Jeff Brohm is as high as any team outside of the Top 10 in college football.
