Northwestern’s first Big Ten test of the 2019-20 season might also be one of its most challenging.
The Wildcats (4-3, 0-0) are set to take on the Purdue Boilermakers (5-3, 0-0) Sunday afternoon in what will be the conference opener for both teams. Mackey Arena is always one of the toughest places to play in the country, and it should be especially rocking with Purdue coming off a dominant home victory against the defending champion Virginia Cavaliers earlier this week.
