Nebraska tries to figure out Purdue's new look

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Darrell Hazell is shaking things up at Purdue.

The Boilermakers coach made a quarterback change, switched right guards and tinkered with his defensive lineup during the bye week. He's hoping it makes a difference Saturday against Nebraska (4-1, 1-0 Big Ten).

Little has gone right for Purdue (1-4, 0-1) this season. The offense is scoring a league low 17.0 points per game. The defense is giving up a league-high 36.6 points per game.

Hazell decided to give freshman quarterback Danny Etling a chance to jump start the season.

This week, he'll be facing  a young Cornhuskers' defense that is ranked in the bottom half of the league in the major categories but has shown improvement the last two weeks.

Nebraska will face off with the Boilermakers at noon in West Lafayette. The game can be viewed on the Big Ten Network.
