NCAA Football: Purdue at Northwestern Caylor Arnold-USA TODAY Sports

Northwestern’s home game vs. Purdue on November 11 will start at 6 p.m. and be aired on ESPN2, the program announced on Twitter today.

Purdue got off to an impressive 3-2 start under first year head coach Jeff Brohm but has lost three straight heading into a matchup with Illinois this weekend.

Northwestern’s streak of five straight games on ABC/ESPN/ESPN2 will come to an end when the Wildcats take on Nebraska at 2:30 on BTN this Saturday, but it’s back to the worldwide leader against the Boilermakers the following week.

Hopefully being under the lights (and maybe on a four-game winning streak) will lead to a greater student turnout than in recent weeks. Wear jackets, people!
