2018 Purdue Football Schedule / Season-Ticket Information


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The feel-good story that is Purdue football continued Tuesday as the Boilermakers were honored for winning the Foster Farms Bowl during the men's basketball game against Wisconsin.

The Boilermakers defeated Arizona 38-35 in Santa Clara, California, on Dec. 27 to cap a remarkable first season under head coach Jeff Brohm and are riding a wave of momentum heading into next season.

Season tickets went on sale Tuesday, and sales were brisk. More than 700 new season tickets were sold.

After acknowledging the play of the No. 3-ranked men's basketball team, Brohm applauded the fans for their support throughout the season.

"We can't thank you enough," the ultra-popular Brohm said.

For 2018, per-game ticket prices have been reduced for nearly 30 percent of Ross-Ade Stadium - in the Prime and Sideline sections - while the majority of the remaining sections have no increase in cost. All fans who purchase season tickets will save an average of 30 percent off single-game prices.

The Boilermakers boast an attractive seven-game home schedule with Big Ten Conference West Division foes Iowa, Northwestern and Wisconsin; defending East Division champion Ohio State; and non-conference visits from Missouri of the Southeastern Conference, Boston College of the Atlantic Coast Conference and Eastern Michigan of the Mid-American Conference. Last season, their combined record was 62-30 (.674 winning percentage), and six squads played in bowl games.

Purdue aspires to grow its fan base while maximizing attendance and revenue.

"Our goal is to sell out Ross-Ade seven times in 2018," Purdue vice president and athletics director Mike Bobinski said.

Fans who renew or order season tickets by Feb. 7 will receive a commemorative Foster Farms Bowl championship print autographed by Brohm. Other new benefits for season-ticket buyers include discounted rates at the Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex, a Leroy Keyes bobblehead and the opportunity to purchase various athletics tickets early, plus bonus benefits for renewing early online and more.

Purdue averaged 47,884 fans last season, its most since 2012 and an increase of 13,433 per game that was by far the greatest in the country.
