Purdue coach Jeff Brohm spent all week searching for a weak link in Michigan's defense.
The Boilermakers (2-1) posed a tougher-than-expected challenge against Louisville, easily beat Mid-American Conference contender Ohio and last week pulled off a 32-point win at Missouri .
When the Big Ten began division play in 2011, Purdue and Michigan wound up on opposite sides.
Purdue's Cole Herdman is averaging 28.6 yards per catch — the best among all Football Bowl Subdivision tight ends.
In the 48 hours following the Missouri win, school officials said they sold an additional 3,000 tickets and as of Wednesday afternoon, only 5,000 remained for the game.
