Penn State vs. Purdue: Who has the edge?

Purdue has gone from the Cradle of Quarterbacks to the Revolving Door of Signal Callers. Danny Etling is the sixth quarterback to start for the Boilermakers since 2010, and Purdue is 18-29 with an 8-20 mark in the Big Ten since then. Etling is completing just 48 percent of his throws and has five interceptions in five games with four touchdowns. He’s backed up by redshirt freshman Austin Appleby. Christian Hackenberg continues to rank in the Top 5 of most Big Ten passing categories but has cooled off lately. Hackenberg has completed just 47 percent of his throws in the second halves of the past two games. Advantage: Penn State.
