WEEK 7: at Purdue

George Karlaftis Purdue

Date: Oct. 23

All-time series: UW leads 50-29-8

Last meeting: UW won 45-24 in 2019

Key returner: DE George Karlaftis (above), who was sidelined by injuries last season, is a potential game-wrecker off the edge. He helped land his younger brother Yanni Karlaftis, a four-star OLB who is the highest-ranked player in Purdue’s class and was considering UW.

Note: Last season’s game was canceled due to UW’s COVID-19 outbreak, but the Badgers haven’t lost to Purdue since 2003.
