Friday night is a great night for football!
It’s Friday night football in Indianapolis! Purdue has not done well on weeknight games of late, losing on a Thursday night in 2018 to Northwestern at home. We also lost last year on a Friday night in Reno where a kicker shot us just to watch us die. We did win against Ohio on a Friday night in 2017, however.
Let’s go get our first win in TCF Bank Stadium.
