Purdue 38, Michigan 36, your complete guide to Saturday's game

Just when it looked like a double-digit lead would be enough to propel the Michigan football team into its first bowl game of the Rich Rodriguez era, problems all too familiar scuttled those plans.
As they did last week against Illinois, the Wolverines found themselves unable to counter a sudden shift in momentum during the third quarter. Purdue never relented after that, earning its first win in Ann Arbor since 1966 by a 38-36 score.
After the game, bad blood simmered between the two coaches.
