This should be a fun one. A pair of ranked teams meet in a non-conference game at Mackey Arena for the first time since January 1, 2010 when Purdue blasted West Virginia, who eventually went to the Final Four.There is a small chance this could be like that.

I am in the house tonight with a media credential, so let's have some fun!
