WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Big Ten has released the conference schedule for the 2014 season. In addition to playing nonconference foes Western Michigan, Central Michigan, Notre Dame and Southern Illinois, the Boilermakers will face Iowa, Michigan State, Wisconsin and Northwestern in West Lafayette and will travel to Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska and Indiana.

In a scheduling quirk, Iowa will visit Ross-Ade Stadium in back-to-back seasons (2013 and 2014) for the first time since 1988 and 1989, while Purdue will head to Bloomington to face the Hoosiers in back-to-back years for the first time ever in a series that dates to 1891.

The Central Michigan game on Sept. 6 will serve as the Band and Family Day, while the Sept. 27 Iowa game will serve as the 91st annual Homecoming game. The Boilermakers are 10-2-1 all-time against the Hawkeyes on Homecoming.
