Now that we are done with the non-conference season and heading into conference play, we get to find out some of the kickoff times for the rest of Purdue’s games. First up:
Sept. 28 Minnesota at #Purdue, 3:30 p.m. ESPN or ESPN2 pic.twitter.com/F0wEJIRDPZ— mike carmin (@carmin_jc) September 16, 2019
While some on the staff were hoping for a noon kickoff due to travel logistics, I’m sure they are in the minority of fans who wanted a noon game. Looking at the schedule, it looks like Tennessee/Florida and Southern Mississippi/Alabama got the noon slots on ESPN and ESPN 2. Since 3:30 kickoffs are right in the sweet spot of giving fans time to travel and tailgate before the game, I’m sure it will attract a decent crowd despite the 1-2 start.
As for me, I will be in Germany during this game for a work trip, so this is a 9:30pm kickoff for me on the day I arrive. So now I get to relive what you all went through for the Nevada game! Without the 4th quarter meltdown, hopefully...
