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.

Purdue loses to Eastern Michigan, but beats #23 Boston College. That makes sense.

If Boston college ( who got beat by 0-3 Purdue today) is Clemson’s toughest opponent, then their schedule must be extremely difficult
