Purdue will face a yet-to-be-determined team from the Atlantic Coast Conference. The four most likely opponents are Wake Forest, Boston College, Maryland and Virginia Tech. All 4 teams stand at 5-2 in the ACC.
"Purdue has a chance to be a nine-win team and boasts one of the most exciting offenses in all of college football," Florida Citrus Sports executive director Steve Hogan said in a release. "The Boilermakers have one of the more passionate fan bases and will follow their team to Orlando to see what should be a top bowl match up against a very good ACC opponent."
Kickoff for the Champs Sports Bowl is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. EST at Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium, and the game will be televised by ESPN.
