Butler is facing Indiana and Purdue plays Notre Dame at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

USA Today Sports


We are live at Bankers Life Fieldhouse today as Purdue takes on Notre Dame in the 2012 Crossroads Classic. The Boilers should expect a hostile environment today as there is a large pro-IU crowd here. it remains to be seen how many will stick around for today's second game. At least Butler is competing with IU so far.

I have a short video preview I shot on my way to the Fieldhouse. I don't know if it will make a difference or not, but the Boilers need a win today and some positive momentum.
