Stats and Trends: Boston College has not won an ACC/B1G Challenge game since 2009 when they topped Penn State. BC is 2-5 all time in the ACC/B1G challenge and has an 0-3 all-time record against Purdue.
Purdue's recent results: Like the Eagles, Purdue started the season 5-0 before falling in their sixth game to get to 5-1. Purdue knocked off #22 Louisville 62-60 last weekend before falling in overtime to #13 Stanford, so this will likely be a tough test for BC.
