Less than a week after the Boston College Eagles were nationally ranked for the first time in nearly 10 years, it all quickly came crashing down on Saturday.

In a matchup against the winless Purdue Boilermakers, the Eagles had a chance to continue to build momentum with sophomore quarterback Anthony Brown and climb further up the rankings.

Instead, Purdue wrecked the Eagles with a 30-13 victory that really wasn’t even as close as the score indicated.



Twitter immediately reacted as the Boilermakers finally got their first win of the season against a Boston College team that couldn’t hold up to the pressure of being ranked.
