WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) Purdue coach Jeff Brohm knows this script - and he is hoping the ending is the same.
In 2014, his first season as Western Kentucky's head coach, the Hilltoppers were 3-5 before winning their final four games to qualify for the Bahamas Bowl, where they completed an 8-5 season with a 49-48 victory against Western Michigan.
Entering Saturday's Old Oaken Bucket game against rival Indiana, Purdue has recovered from a 3-6 start and is in position to earn the school's first bowl bid since the 2012 season with a win at home. Both teams are 5-6.
