Game notes: Purdue already has one top-10 upset to its credit, beating Iowa in Iowa City, 24-7. Since then the Boilermakers got trounced by Wisconsin and squeaked by Nebraska. Purdue and Michigan State haven't played since 2018, when Rocky Lombardi led the Spartans to a 23-13 home win. A freshman Jalen Nailor had three catches and 70 yards that day. Nailor has been great as a junior with 31 catches for 587 yards, but he's dealing with a hand injury that will keep him out of Saturday's game.
