The Boilers have had only two noon kickoffs so far in 2018.

Earlier today the Big Ten announced kickoff times for next week’s games, including our trip to East Lansing. The Boilers and Spartans will kickoff at noon on October 27th.

A TV network has not formally been announced yet, but it will likely be BTN, FS1, or one of the ESPNs.

Purdue has not beaten Michigan State since a 17-15 win in 2006 in East Lansing. There have been a lot of off years in between, however, as the Spartan win streak is only at seven in a row. Strangely, this was the one team that Darrell Hazell could play close with consistency during his tenure. Purdue only lost 24-21 in 2015, 45-31 on a late pick six in 2014, and 14-0 in 2013. Danny Hope also lost a pair of games 35-31 and 40-37 in his first two seasons, so the last five meetings have been close.

Also, this is not a homecoming game, so Purdue can’t improve on its 3-0 homecoming record.
