It’s that time folks: the weather is about to get cooler, pumpkin spice lattes are beginning to churn and football is back! We have waited what seems like an eternity to see our Purdue Boilermakers back in action and the wait is almost over. New head coach, Ryan Walters, will step foot into a newly renovated Ross Ade Stadium to a roaring crowd, none louder than the Ross Ade Brigade whom now reside in the brand new south end zone stands.
Obviously only 61,441 screaming fans can fit into the stadium so here’s how to watch if you’re at home. Also, for those of you that are savvy with betting, our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook have provided game odds and the over-under for you to see. We here at Hammer and Rails can’t wait for Noon on Saturday and a great Boilermaker season ahead. See y’all out there!
