Countdown to Northwestern-Purdue
It's just over two hours until kickoff here at Ryan Field for the NU-Purdue game and you probably couldn't have asked for a better fall day. Even though it was in the mid-80s this afternoon, it should cool off a bit by the time the game starts at 6:30.
It's going to be interesting to see how Jacob Schmidt and Mike Trumpy do in the running game and how Dan Persa can pick apart Purdue's defense. On the Boilermakers side, I'm looking forward to watching running back Dan Dierking play. I remember writing about him and reporting on him when he was in high school at Wheaton Warrenville South. He was probably one of the best high school backs I had seen and the Sun-Times had picked him our 2006 Player of the Year.
