Purdue sellout official

Saturday’s game is now officially a sellout, except for some remaining student tickets. All tickets available to the general public have been sold.

Here’s this morning’s announcement from IU:

The Indiana Department of Athletics has announced public tickets for Saturday’s Old Oaken Bucket game between IU and Purdue are sold out. A limited number of student tickets remain available.

Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. EST and the game will be televised by the Big Ten Network. Thom Brennaman will handle play-by-play duties and he will be joined by analyst Charles Davis and sideline reporter Charissa Thompson. The game can also be heard on the statewide IU Radio Network with Don Fischer (play-by-play), Pete Compise (analyst) and Joe Smith (pre-game, halftime and post-game) on the call.

“I cannot tell you how excited we are going to be when we step on the field and see a packed house,” Indiana head coach Bill Lynch said. “This is what college football is all about. We thank you for your support and we will do our part on the field.”

The longtime rivals will battle for the Old Oaken Bucket, the trophy awarded to the winner of the annual Indiana-Purdue game. Saturday’s meeting marks the 83rd battle for the bucket and the 110th overall meeting in the series.

This is the first time since the 1994 season the Hoosiers and Boilermakers will meet with both teams sitting over the .500 mark and the first time the two teams are both bowl eligible in the same season since 1980.

Additionally, the 1967 Rose Bowl team is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a weekend full of festivities and will be recognized at halftime. The Hoosiers will wear throwback uniforms and helmets commemorating IU’s lone appearance in Pasadena.

  1. “The Indiana Department of Athletics has announced public

    Hopefully the students will do their part and buy that limited amount. With student tickets only being $8.00 (I think) there should not be one of them left!

    Go Hoosiers!!! Puck Furdue!

  2. Student tickets are $10 in advance of gameday and $15 on gameday. The students have done their part all year and they will do their part for this game. I 100% guarantee that the student section will be completely full for this game!

  3. Steve O – Come on man.

    “my roommate and his friend……..apparently they heard from one of Rob Senderhoff’s friends

    That is like saying I heard from my roommate that his girlfriend’s, ex-boyfriend’s, brother’s, best friend’s sister who is friends with the cousin of the nephew of the wife of the best friend of Senderoff’s wife’s hairdresser’s janitor said ………!!

    You have shown to be a smarter poster than this…
