The Big Ten has never won the Acc/Big Ten Challenge without a Purdue victory. That includes two years ago, when Purdue lost late at Florida State and the competition finished in a 7-7 tie. We’re 11-8 in the event and have the most wins of any Big Ten team. That makes tonight’s game critical as Miami and Purdue are batting leadoff for their respective conferences.
