In this story about minimum bowl eligibility requirements potentially moving from six to seven from the Journal and Courier, came this interesting nugget about Colorado and Purdue getting closer to solidifying a future home-and-home agreement as part of the Pac-12/B1G partnership.

Although nothing is in writing, Purdue's first Pac-12 opponent in the series most likely will be Colorado. Burke said that Colorado would visit Ross-Ade Stadium in 2016 and the Boilermakers would travel to Boulder, Colo., the next season.

"We're still going through the details, but we have a handshake agreement but it's not in writing yet," Burke said. "We're trying to work through it. People have schedules in place for years. It's not as easy as getting people around the table and figuring out who's going to play. We've held a couple of dates."

It's a ways down the road, but this would be an interesting match-up for the Buffaloes. Personally I would have preferred that the series kicked off with the Cornhuskers, but I'm sure that will come in time.
