After a surprise 7-6 season that brought the Old Oaken Bucket home and a bowl win over a major conference team for the first time since 2002 there is a ton of excitement for Purdue Football. We also now know when we will get our first glimpse of the 2018 team with the announcement of the spring practice schedule and game:
Unlike last year there won’t be a baseball game to follow up on campus. The baseball team plays at Indiana that weekend, but the softball team is scheduled to face off against Northwestern at 3pm out at Bittinger Stadium.
We’ll also get to see plenty of new faces in the spring game. Purdue is replacing 7 defensive starters and both Elijah Sindelar and David Blough could miss time. It will offer one of our first looks at Nicholas Sipe and Jack Plummer, who are expected to split first team snaps at quarterback.
