Penn State vs. Purdue 2012: Game time, TV schedule, odds and more

Patrick Smith

The Nittany Lions will look to rebound when they face Purdue on Saturday.

The Penn State Nittany Lions will try to rebound from a loss last week when they hit the road to play the Purdue Boilermakers on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.

Penn State, which is coming off a 35-23 loss to Ohio State last week, is a 3 1/2-point favorite Saturday.

The Nittany Lions had won five in a row before the Buckeyes halted the streak. Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin threw two fourth-quarter touchdown passes but it wasn't enough to catch Ohio State. The Nittany Lions are 5-3 (3-1) this season.

The Boilermakers (3-5, 0-4) started the season 3-1 but have lost four games in a row. Purdue gave up 34 first-half points in a 44-28 loss to Minnesota last week.

The last time Purdue beat Penn State was 2004. The Boilermakers won, 20-13.

McGloin leads the Nittany Lions into Saturday's game. He's completed 62 percent of his passes for 2,115 yards. He's thrown 16 touchdowns and three interceptions.
