Purdue students getting hyped for Saturday's game

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Number 21 Notre Dame takes on Purdue at Ross-Ade Stadium Saturday night. The Boilermakers aren't wasting any time getting hyped for the game.

As the fans start to enjoy the weekend, work is still happening at Ross-Ade stadium.

Lines are being redrawn on the field, crews were washing windows and extra lights were added to the stadium.

The stadium has actually been recently nicknamed “the furnace” with help from first year coach Darrel Hazell.

Students are happy about the change.

“I think it's really cool I think he's trying to change the culture that Danny Hope left us with and try to get more hope involved with our football team," said Udit Vyas, Purdue student.

“I think it adds a cool atmosphere to our team this year," said Purdue student Mitchell Powell.

Powell grew up in South Bend, but is a sophomore and says while he’ll be wearing black and gold in the student section, he will secretly be rooting for Notre Dame.
