Purdue is looking to snap a Final Four drought that exceeds four decades.

Despite consistently having one of the B1G’s top basketball programs, Purdue hasn’t played in a Final Four since 1980. Neither Gene Keady nor Matt Painter has been able to lead the Boilermakers to the pinnacle of college basketball in the past 40 years.

Could that change this season? College basketball expert and Big Ten Network contributor Andy Katz believes it will this weekend.

Purdue finds itself in the Sweet 16 after posting wins over No. 14 Seed Yale and No. 6 seed Texas in the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament. Now, the Boilermakers will take on No. 15 St. Peter’s with a trip to the Elite 8 on the line.

If they take care of business, the Boilers will have a matchup with either No. 4 seed UCLA or No. 8 seed North Carolina for a spot in the Final Four in New Orleans. Katz thinks Purdue gets the job done.

Below is the clip with Katz explaining why Purdue will end the decades-long drought.

This might be Purdue’s best chance to snap the streak.

The Boilers will take the floor against the Peacocks on Friday night on CBS. Tip-off is set for 7:09 p.m. ET.
