The history behind "The Furnace"

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. --- Purdue's football stadium, Ross - Ade Stadium is now known as the Furnace.

 

The Stadium holds roughly 65,000 screaming fans.

It's a lot smaller than Notre Dame Stadium.

Built back in 1924, it underwent a $70 million renovation in 2001.

It's one of four Big Ten stadiums without permanent stadium lights.

So they had to bring in temporary lights for Saturday night's game.
