Purdue freshman receiver David Bell didn’t take it upon himself to try to do too much when speedy preseason All-America candidate Rondale Moore went down with a leg injury three weeks ago.
Indiana and Purdue are both graduating student-athletes at a higher percentage than their respective student bodies, according to the annual NCAA Graduation Success Report released Wednesday.
Even without standout guard Carsen Edwards, several major preseason basketball publications project Purdue to finish in the top third of the Big Ten in 2019-20.
Purdue will be without senior quarterback Elijah Sindelar, sophomore wide receiver Rondale Moore and several other key players heading into Saturday’s matchup at No. 12 Penn State.
Senior quarterback Elijah Sindelar remains in concussion protocol and is questionable for Purdue’s Big Ten opener against Minnesota on Saturday at Ross-Ade Stadium.
After missing on the College Football Playoff last year, the Big Ten is poised to be a major contender this season. Five teams are ranked inside the top 15 for the first time since 1959, led by No. 4 Wisconsin.
