In replacement of the game, Purdue will hold a final practice on April 22nd. at Folk Field that will only be open to family and alumni.
A disappointing announcement as I think we are all anxiously awaiting to see this new era of Purdue football. After winning the West last year, I’m excited to see where Purdue stands with a new QB and guy on the sidelines. But as always, safety first for players and fans. We wouldn’t want anything falling from the rafters on them… oops sorry wrong sport.
