After two straight losses, Purdue has one more chance at a bowl game with a win over Indiana on Saturday.

The annual Old Oaken Bucket game could also determine whether the Hoosiers get a bid to their first bowl game in 14 years.

Boilermakers coach Joe Tiller says he doesn't want emotions to get out of control.

Purdue will play Indiana in Memorial Stadium. Purdue is 7-4 and the Hoosiers are 6-5. The Boilermakers have dominated the game in recent years.

It will be the Bucket game as head coach for Bill Lynch, who took over at Indiana after the death of Terry Hoeppner last summer.
