WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Boilermakers head to Missouri for a Big Ten vs. Southeastern Conference battle Saturday. The game is Purdue's first against a team currently in the SEC since 2004 when the Boilermakers faced No. 11 Georgia in the 2004 Capital One Bowl. Game time is set for 4 p.m. ET and will be televised live on the SEC Network.

Purdue (1-1, 0-0 B1G) is coming off a 44-21 home-opening win over Ohio. Tario Fuller led the running backs with 142 yards on the ground and his first career touchdown. The Boilermakers have won four in a row when having a back rush for 100 or more yards.

The Boilermakers defense will be tested by Missouri (1-1, 0-1 SEC) as the Tigers rank fourth in the country in total offense through two games. The Tigers won their opener over Missouri State before falling to South Carolina last week.
