Fresno State lost its top player in QB Jake Haener, so QBs Logan Fife (2 TDs, 6 INTs) and newcomer Mikey Keene are battling for the job. The Bulldogs also lost their best wide receivers. While the offense has all kinds of question marks, the defense is talented and experienced. The linebacking corps will lead the way along with the best cornerback duo in the Mountain West Conference. Purdue has a new in QB Hudson Card, a transfer from Texas, and an offensive playbook under new coach Ryan Walters. Walters was the defensive coordinator at Illinois. The Illini had the best scoring defense (12.8 points per game) and the third-best total defense (273.5 yards) in the nation in 2022. Bet Fresno State/Purdue UNDER the total as a Max Play.
