StatSmack! Purdue is better than Ball State
  • AP voters think more highly of Purdue and have put us in the AP Top 25 more often over the past 10 years than Ball State (76 vs 0).
  • More property crime happens in Muncie so you better protect your valuables if you visit (when compared to West Lafayette -- according to the FBI).
  • Kids want to come here. Since 1998 Purdue has recruited more Top 50 high school players than Ball State (3 vs 0).
  • It must sting. Purdue has blown out Ball State by 20 points or more on 3 occasions since 2008.
