Purdue volleyball (11-1, 2-0) reached No. 5 in the AVCA poll on Monday the same day it swept Big Ten weekly honors – Freshman of the Week (Eva Hudson) and Setter of the Week (Grace Balensiefer).

Members of the nation’s fifth-ranked recruiting class saw action for the first time as Boilermakers on Friday as Purdue softball kicked off its fall exhibition schedule with a doubleheader.

After two heartbreaking, last-minute losses and an excruciatingly narrow win over Group of Five opponent Florida Atlantic, the Purdue football team is the subject of many questions.

Purdue led Florida Atlantic University by 2 points as the Owls began a potential game-winning drive with two minutes left. Junior linebacker Jacob Wahlberg saved the Boilermakers, forcing a Florida Atlantic fumble to take away the Owls’ chance at a game-winning drive.

Momentum was a key factor in this game as the Boilermakers gave up three goals in five minutes in the second half.

Tyler Downs, the 2020 Olympic diver who joined Purdue men’s swimming and diving last year, is not currently a student at Purdue, Ben Turner, the strategic communications officer for the program, said.

The Boilermakers will look to shake off their 3-0 defeat against the Wildcats on Sunday and compete against Wisconsin on Thursday night.

Purdue has played only one ranked match this year, its only loss this season. Friday’s opponent in Minnesota has played in multiple ranked contests, beating No. 12 Florida and No. 14 Baylor, but lost to No. 1 Texas, No. 5 Stanford and No. 17 Pepperdine.

Defensive end George Karlaftis and fullback Zander Horvath competed against each other on opposing teams for the first time Sept. 15, and commemorated the meeting by exchanging jerseys after the game.

Coming off of a tough loss, Purdue will face a team it’s never met on the field before, but one that is part of head coach Jeff Brohm’s coaching journey.
