WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue basketball made an 8-spot jump in the AP poll on Monday, from No. 13 to No. 5.

The eight-spot jump marks the biggest jump for Purdue in a weekly poll since January of 1990.

The No. 5 ranking marks the highest spot in the poll for the Boilermakers since February of 2010.

Purdue will travel to Ann Arbor to take on Michigan Tuesday at 9 p.m.

The Wolverines are one of just three teams in the Big Ten that this year's senior class has never beaten on the road.

The last time Purdue beat Michigan in Ann Arbor was in 2012.
