(Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)It’s been a rough start of the 2018 college football season for one Big Ten program. The Purdue Boilermakers opened with a tough home loss to Northwestern in Week 1 and now the team is in danger of dropping another.With Eastern Washington coming to town, it looked like an easy bounce-back game for the Boilermakers. However, it has quickly turned into a worrisome event for Purdue fans watching their team struggle.The Eagles currently have a 17-12 lead with just under eight minutes left in the fourth quarter. Purdue’s offense has outgained Eastern Michigan by nearly 50 yards, but the Boilermakers have two turnovers on the day.Now the team is looking at an 0-2 start on the season.Touchdown Eastern Michigan. Now up on Purdue midway through the 4th.— Pat Forde (@YahooForde) September 8, 2018It’s not a good look for head coach Jeff Brohm who is known for producing explosive offenses. The Boilermakers need to turn this one around in a hurry or their 2018 season could go off the rails early.Meanwhile, Eastern Michigan is hoping to pull off the upset and move to 2-0.last_img
