Boilermakers coaches ready for Round 2 with Lynch

Posted: Updated:

Purdue coach Darrell Hazell and defensive coordinator Greg Hudson are ready for the sequel. 

Ten months ago, Hazell's Kent State team was lining up against Jordan Lynch and Northern Illinois in the Mid-American Conference title game. Hazell lost in double overtime. 

A month later, Hudson's Florida State team faced Lynch and the Huskies in the Orange Bowl. Hudson won in regulation. 

On Saturday, Hazell and Hudson will try to stop Lynch yet again. It's not just his strong right arm that may cause trouble for Purdue (1-3, 0-1 Big Ten). 

After leading the Huskies (3-0) to unprecedented heights in 2012, Lynch could become the 10th player in the Football Bowl Subdivision to accumulate 4,000 yards passing and 3,000 rushing.
