WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue and Rutgers will meet for the first time on the gridiron Saturday in Pascataway, New Jersey. The game is scheduled to kick off at noon ET at High Point Solutions Stadium and be televised live on the Big Ten Network.

Purdue (3-3, 1-2 B1G) is coming off a hard-fought 17-9 loss at No. 7 Wisconsin. The Boilermaker defense came up with three takeaways and a blocked punt in the game. Through six games, Purdue has faced three teams ranked in the top 16 in the country, one of just three teams nationally to open the season with that feat.

Rutgers (2-4, 1-2 B1G) is coming off a road win at Illinois, 35-24. The Scarlet Knights have faced a pair of top-11 teams to start the season with No. 8 Washington and No. 11 Ohio State.

The Boilermaker defense has been stout on the road and is yet to allow a touchdown after the first quarter in away games, including a pair of second-half shutouts. In three games away from Ross-Ade Stadium, including the neutral site game against Louisville, Purdue is averaging three takeaways per contest.
