TCU football vs. Purdue Boilermakers: Kickoff time, TV, line, prediction

Purdue has Rondale Moore. TCU has Jalen Reagor. Both programs have quarterback questions.

Saturday night’s matchup between TCU and Purdue provides plenty of intrigue and storylines, starting with the stellar receivers in Moore and Reagor. Each will be playing on Sundays in the near future.

But the bigger questions center on the quarterbacks.

The Frogs plan to stick with a two-QB approach with fifth-year senior Alex Delton and true freshman Max Duggan. Purdue, meanwhile, could be without starter Elijah Sindelar (concussion). If Sindelar isn’t cleared, Purdue will go with freshman Jack Plummer.
