Purdue gets a non-noon home game after all! it was announced this morning that the Nevada game on September 24th will be a 3:30pm kickoff and be televised by ESPNNews:
Per #Purdue, the Sept. 24 game vs. Nevada will kick at 3:30 p.m. and be televised by ESPNews.— GoldandBlack.com (@GoldandBlackcom) September 12, 2016
it is amazing how little it takes to get me excited about Purdue football, but not having to get up early for a noon kickoff is one of them. I would imagine that part of this is a courtesy to Nevada, who would be playing at 9am their time.
JUST KIDDING, EVERYBODY!!!!!
ESPN has changed the start time of the Sept. 24 game against Nevada from 3:30 p.m. ET to noon ET. #BoilerUp— Purdue Football (@BoilerFootball) September 12, 2016
This will also mark the second time this season Purdue has been on ESPNNews since the home opener against Eastern Kentucky was on there. So far on the season Nevada has won in overtime against FCS foe Cal Poly and lost 39-10 at Notre Dame this past week.
This coming week they host Buffalo in a non-conference game. Also, it should be noted that this is the first meeting between the two teams.
