The Purdue Boilermakers don’t play at home until Oct. 15, which is good news for the grounds crew because a massive sinkhole formed at Ross–Ade Stadium over the weekend.
According to the grounds crew, a main water line broke and completely flooded the field near the end zone and extended to midfield. When they reported for work early Monday morning, they were greeted by a damaged field.
It got so bad that a huge sinkhole formed right there on the field.
Purdue is coming off a 50-7 loss at Maryland. With the team at Illinois on Saturday, the crew will have 11 days to get the field ready for the next home game.
