Where Will Purdue Go Bowling?

After a convincing win over the Hoosiers in the Old Oaken Bucket Game, the Boilers are heading to the postseason.

Purdue may be on edge today because of the Jeff Brohm situation, but at least they can look forward to another bowl game appearance. 

The Boilermakers handled IU on Saturday in Bloomington to earn their 6th victory of the season and a bowl bid for the second straight season. 

So, where will they be playing this postseason? 

ESPN thinks they're heading to the Big Apple. 

Both of their bowl projection experts have Purdue playing in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium on December 27th. They differ on who the Boilers will play. One has them scheduled to go up against Pitt, and the other has them battling Duke. 

They may have finished 6-6 again just like in 2017, but there's no doubt the Pinstripe Bowl would be a step up from the Foster Farms Bowl (still can't believe that's even real). 

We'll find out for sure on Sunday, December 2.
