WEST LAFAYETTE -- Purdue will play Central Michigan in the Motor City Bowl in Detroit on Dec. 26.
Purdue (7-5) and Central Michigan (8-5) met earlier in the season, when the Boilermakers pulled off a 45-22 victory at home.
The Motor City Bowl, which will be played at Ford Field, will be televised by ESPN.
Purdue Coach Joe Tiller will be taking his 10th Purdue team to postseason play in 11 seasons. Tiller says the team hopes to make the bowl game its best game this year.
