Ross-Ade to Host H.S. Games Sept. 9
Aug. 30, 2017

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - When it was announced that Purdue football would be playing on a Friday night at home - Sept. 8 - athletics director Mike Bobinski was swift to extend an invitation to the five area high schools to play at Ross-Ade Stadium the following day.

Three schools took him up on the offer.

On Sept. 9, West Lafayette will take on Crete-Monee, from Crete, Illinois, at 11 a.m. ET, and Harrison and Lafayette Jefferson will square off at 4 p.m.

"We understand that in most states, our state and our neighboring states included, Friday night is for high school football," Purdue athletics director Mike Bobinski said. "To help ease the burden on our high school partners in town, we offered them the opportunity to play their games on Saturday at Ross-Ade Stadium, and the athletics directors were great in understanding our dilemma. For the three teams that are playing here, it should be pretty special, and we are excited about that."

The gates will open at 10 a.m. for the first game and 3 p.m. for the second game. Fans attending the first game will need to leave the stadium upon its conclusion.

Tickets will be available for purchase gameday at Gates F and G on the north end of Ross-Ade. They are priced at $5 each for West Lafayette-Crete and $6 for Harrison-Jefferson.

Regarding parking, fans are encouraged to use the R Lot north of Ross-Ade. To view a map, click here.
