For the second week in a row, the MAC is pitting one of its Michigan schools up against purdue. Last week Purdue (1-0) narrowly beat Western Michigan, today they get to face off against a stronger CMU (1-0) squad.
The Chippewas are coming off of a 20-16 season-opening win this past Thursday against the Chattanooga Mocs. CMU won, but it was far from pretty, and senior wide receiver Titus Davis suffered an undisclosed knee injury in the game. Davis is currently listed as day-to-day, and it's not certain whether or not he'll play today.
The Chippewas have struggled, as of late, in road openers, and will be looking to get just their third win in their past 11 tries. CMU opened on the road in 2013 at fellow B1G opponent Michigan, falling 59-3. Head coach Dan Enos is searching for just his second win over a B1G school as well. He's 1-4 all-time.
This is the sixth time these two teams have met on the gridiron with Purdue holding a 5-0 series lead.
