Chicago Sun-Times - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL -

The facts: 6 p. m., ESPN2, 720- AM.

The records: Pur­due 4- 5, 2- 4 Big Ten; North­west­ern 6- 3, 4- 2 Big Ten.

The sto­ry­line: Over­time, any­one? It would be the fourth game in a row for the Wild­cats. They’ve won three con­sec­u­tive games in OT, so it’s not like it would scare them, but one would hope they’re too good not to fin­ish off the Boil­er­mak­ers in reg­u­la­tion. The more trips to the red zone, the bet­ter; NU is one of the top teams in the coun­try at con­vert­ing those chances into points. For an of­fense that some­times strug­gles to move the ball, that ef­fi­ciency is a huge deal. The line: Wild­cats by 4 ½ .

Greenberg’s pick: North­west­ern, 27- 17.
