Purdue athletics announces changes to tailgating for Iowa-Purdue following heavy wind advisory
An email was released by Purdue athletics on Friday. Fans will not be able to use tailgate tents or any other temporary structures in parking lots at Saturday’s game.
The wind advisory is set to take place for Tippecanoe County, which includes West Lafayette. The advisory is going to last from 8 a.m. ET to 8 p.m. ET. Tents are also something that fans can not bring with them on Saturday.
The gusts of wind are going to be up to 50 miles per hour. This could cause problems for both teams when it comes to throwing the football. It may be better for both to focus on the running game in Week 10.
⚠️ 𝐖𝐈𝐍𝐃 𝐀𝐃𝐕𝐈𝐒𝐎𝐑𝐘 has been issued for Tippecanoe County for tomorrow (Nov. 5) from 8AM-8PM, with gusts up to 50MPH.
