We've got actual, factual football today in West Lafayette! we have three of our staff (T-Mill, Casey, and Kyle) embedded at Ross-Ade throughout the crowd. T-Mill is even in the swank Shively Stadium Club on his parents' seats, so someone might call him sir (without adding, "you're making a scene.").

Actually, he is more likely to be told he is making a scene.

Anyway, here is all of your important watching info and Gamethread for the afternoon. We're either going to feel good with the rare Purdue football win or this will be an accurate record of a complete meltdown by the remaining fanbase.

As a reminder, please don't share illegal streams here in the comments. SB Nation is discouraging them, but TuneIn radio is still a great place to find the radio broadcast and it is legal for us to share.
