    The No. 21 Purdue Boilermakers will host the Nebraska Cornhuskers at Mackey Arena in a Big Ten battle on Saturday.

    The Boilermakers (18-4, 6-3 Big Ten) are relieved after surviving a strong effort on the road from the Minnesota Golden Gophers, escaping “The Barn” with a 68-64 victory. Purdue never pulled away in this one as many expected they would, and Minnesota kept fighting to drop an eight-point lead to two with 10 seconds left in the contest. Vince Edwards was fouled and cashed in on both of his free throws to seal the win for the Boilermakers. Edwards has really come on for Purdue as of late, finishing with a season-high 24 points. A.J. Hammons matched Edwards with eight rebounds and chipped in 16 points in 31 minutes.

    The Cornhuskers (12-9, 4-4 Big Ten) saw their four-game winning streak come to an end Saturday night when they fell to Michigan, 81-68, at home. Nebraska trailed by as many as 16 in the second half, but it clawed back to within two points with 3:18 left in the game. However, the Wolverines would go on a 10-2 run from that point to put the Huskers away for good. Andrew White and Glynn Watson Jr. had 15 points each to lead Nebraska, but they were unable to stop Derrick Walton Jr., who had 19 points and 12 rebounds for Michigan. 

    Saturday’s matchup will be the 16th between Purdue and Nebraska with the Boilermakers leading the series, 11-4, all-time. Purdue has taken five of the last seven meetings against Nebraska since the Huskers joined the Big Ten in 2011-12.

    Prediction

    The Boilermakers survived a scare on Wednesday, but they’ll return to Mackey where their play improves dramatically. With Caleb Swanigan (possibly) back into the fold, expect Purdue to get back to its bread and butter of going inside to wear its opponents down. If Nebraska has any chance in this one, its to jump on Purdue early during its traditional slow start to games. Even if that happens, Purdue’s big men will continue to grind in the second half to put the Huskers away.


    Game Notes

    • Purdue has out-rebounded its opponents by at least 10 rebounds 10 times this season. The Boilermakers have out-rebounded all 22 opponents this year.
    • Opponents have shot over 50 percent in just five of the last 65 games against Nebraska.
    • With three blocks vs. Minnesota, A.J. Hammons moved past Brad Sellers into sixth place on the Big Ten career blocked shots list with 308.
