Purdue announces sellout for upcoming B1G West showdown
West Lafayette is going to be sold out for this Saturday’s showdown against Wisconsin.
Purdue officially announced the news on Twitter, though fans can still get tickets through StubHub, so not all hope is lost.

This is what happens when a school is ranked for the first time since 2007. The Boilermakers had arguably the upset of the year this past Saturday when they marched into Iowa City and took down then No. 2 Iowa.
Quarterback Aidan O’Connell finished with 375 yards passing with 2 touchdowns. Receiver David Bell also had a great game as he continued to torch Iowa for the 3rd year in a row. He finished the game with 11 receptions for 240 yards, plus a touchdown.
Even though the Badgers aren’t ranked, this is still going to be a close game. Their defense was strong against Army this past Saturday and has been stingy all season long.
Kickoff will be at 3 p.m. ET.
