Following an emotional, come-from-behind 37-33 victory over the in-state rival Michigan Wolverines, the No. 3 Michigan State Spartans (8-0) hit the road to take on the Purdue Boilermakers (5-3) in West Lafayette, Indiana.

Michigan State needs to avoid a letdown game following the win over Michigan, and playing Purdue on the road isn’t an easy task. The Boilermakers have the No. 17-ranked total defense in the country (314 yards allowed per game), and rank top-10 in passing defense, allowing just 174 yards per game through the air, and also top-10 in scoring defense (17.1 points per game). Purdue also ranks No. 54 in the FBS in rushing defense (140 yards allowed per game). Offensively, the Boilermakers have a dangerous wide receiver in David Bell who leads the Big Ten with 786 receiving yards.

Below is information on how to watch this weekend’s game between the Michigan State Spartans and Purdue Boilermakers on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
