First Glance: Hoosiers will Travel to West Lafayette in Search of the Old Oaken Bucket in Week 14

First Glance: Hoosiers will Travel to West Lafayette in Search of the Old Oaken Bucket in Week 14

Written by Sammy Jacobs (@Hoosier_Huddle)

The annual Old Oaken Bucket Game will be held on November 30th at Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette this year. The last four Bucket Games have had bowl implications and the 2019 edition shouldn’t be any different. Purdue was won the last two in the series after losing four-straight, while the Hoosiers have been shut out of the postseason two years in a row. Winning at Purdue is never an easy task and this year’s version of the Boilermakers have the potential to be pretty darn good. However, anything can happen on rivalry weekend and the Hoosiers are pretty talented themselves. I expect a raucous atmosphere again in West Lafayette and I think Tom Allen wouldn’t want it any other way. Having this rivalry heat up, is great for the health of college football in the state of Indiana.
