The Purdue Boilermakers might just want to go ahead and change their Boilermaker Special locomotive mascot to a Boilermaker Hype Train.
Not even a week removed from one of their biggest wins in program history over a then-No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes team by 29 points at home in West Lafayette, Purdue now has a better 2019 recruiting-class ranking than USC, according to 247Sports.com.
