Happy hump day, Florida State fans.

As your week starts to head downhill, check out our daily rundown.

Lead Story

Florida State’s opponent for the 2021 Big Ten/ACC Challenge is one that it has seen quite a bit over the last few seasons.

The Seminoles will visit Purdue for the challenge on Nov. 30. It will be the third meeting between the schools in four seasons.

After beating Purdue in a 73-72 thriller in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge in 2018, FSU topped the Boilermakers in overtime to win the Emerald Coast Classic in Niceville the following season.

FSU is 4-0 all-time against Purdue, but this will be the first meeting in West Lafayette. FSU finished 18-7 last season and reached the Sweet 16. Purdue went 18-10 with a first-round loss to North Texas in the NCAA Tournament.
