Purdue band has a new plan for the World's Largest Drum Saturday
The drum saga ahead of Notre Dame and Purdue on Saturday continues.
Originally the “World’s Largest Drum” was going to miss its first performance since 1979.
The drum cannot fit through the visitors’ tunnel, and Notre Dame is not going to allow it to travel through the main tunnel. You can read the original story here.
The Boilermakers have a new plan for the drum as the drum has made its way to South Bend, IN., and it will be staged outside the stadium and shown on the NBC broadcast.
