Hang in there, kids. We’re almost to the end of this football season. There are just two more kickoff times to announce after this one here, and then he season will mercifully be over. Today we found out about the Northwestern game and, yes, it is at noon on BTN. That’s to be expected, really, at this point. Ryan Field lacks lights and no one is clamoring for the battle for last place in the Big Ten West. It will mark the sixth straight noon kickoff this season for Purdue. Somewhere, Morgan burke is nodding in approval.
The good news for Chicago area fans is that you can now attempt the double. You can get Purdue-Northwestern at noon, then try to race down I-65 from the Chicagoland area in roughly three hours to get to that night’s basketball game against Texas at Mackey Arena. If someone does attempt it, let me know.
