Can Purdue win its first Tournament title since 2009?
Purdue has been atop the B1G pretty much the entire season. The Boilers started strong and slightly faltered in February before regaining composure to end the year.
Purdue struggled against the top of the B1G, namely Indiana. The Hosiers swept the Boilermakers in the regular season, and you best believe Purdue fans want revenge should they down a red-hot Penn State team Saturday afternoon.
The B1G title game is set for 3:30 ET on CBS.
