IU-Purdue Game Moved To Thursday

Okay, hold off on your Indiana-Purdue anticipation. The game has been rescheduled to Thursday because of the winter storm.

Purdue athletic director Morgan Burke, in consultation with Big Ten and IU officials, plus state and county officials, decided to push the game back a day. It is set for 7 p.m.

"We spent a majority of the day gathering facts," Burke said. "The decision comes down to safety. We decided to move the game to Thursday to allow for more time to make the roadways safe for travel."

The game could be postponed again if the situation warrants it.

"We'll take a look at the situation again tomorrow," Burke said, "but we think we can play the game on Thursday."
