Do me a favor. Go to your local elementary school and take a look around.

Wait, nevermind. Just scratch all that, and let’s start over.

Purdue and Wake Forest announced Monday they have agreed to a home-and-home in 2026 and 2027 (2026 in West Lafayette, 2027 in Winston-Salem – book your flights today!). The freshmen and sophomores are currently in first and second grade. Some of the recruits who flock to Ross-Ade Stadium and BB&T Field to attend the games are in pre-school.

No one knows why two teams that went 3-9 this fall felt the need to lock in a home-and-home more than a decade from now, but Twitter was glad they did.

Purdue and Wake Forest have met five times previously, most recently in 2003. The nation waits with bated breath for games six and seven.
