BYU is 20-42 n heir last 62 neutral site games, 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games, and 1-4 in their last five games against a team with a winning record. Purdue is 4-1 against the spread against the WCC, 4-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 neutral site games.
