Could IU-Purdue Game Be Postponed?

Whatever happened to global warming?

Maybe it missed Indiana because the weather just might cause the postponement of Wednesday's IU-Purdue game.

Purdue officials are consulting with Indiana, the Big Ten and state police to decide what to do. The Lafayette area is under blizzard conditions -- lots of snow, high winds, major drifting. As soon as the plows clear a road, it gets covered again.

Conditions are bad enough for IU to change its travel plans. It was supposed to leave today after practice. Now, it will wait until 8:30 Wednesday morning to bus to Purdue.

If the state police shut down I-65 and keep it closed for much of tomorrow, it wouldn't make much sense to play the game.

Figure if the game is postponed, it will be rescheduled for Thursday. We'll let you know as soon as we know something.
