Purdue could get a top 25 opponent in its ACC/Big Ten Challenge game in December.
The Boilermakers will travel to play at Virginia Tech on Dec. 1.
The Hokies won 25 games last season and return the ACC's leading scorer in guard Malcolm Delaney. ESPN.com's Andy Katz had Virginia Tech at No. 22 in his most recent preseason poll. The Boilermakers are at No. 2, down a spot from Katz's last column.
The Hokies have won both meetings between the teams. The last game was in 1966.
