Purdue is 13-1 all-time against the state of New Jersey and won its only trip to Rutgers before, but that was back in 1955. Quite a bit has happened since then. Tonight's game is about as close to a must-win for the Boilers because a loss would be a crippling blow to our already damaged NCAA profile. It is time to take care of business.
