WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Boilermaker Nation can help increase Purdue's bowl game payout.

Appearing in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl guarantees the Big Ten Conference participant a pay day of $600,000, which is used to cover the expense for taking the team, band and spirit squad to the game.

The Big Ten agreement with the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl provides an opportunity for the participating team and the conference to receive additional revenue based on the income generated by ticket sales.

Simply stated, the more tickets sold improves the opportunity for Purdue to receive a greater payout.

In conjunction with the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, the Purdue Athletics Department has set up a program where fans can purchase tickets to be donated if their holiday schedule does not permit them to attend the game. All donated tickets will be distributed to military members or underprivileged children.

In addition, Boilermaker Nation can help defray the cost of sending the Purdue "All-American" Marching Band and/or the Reamer Club to the game.

To take part in either initiative, or to purchase tickets (priced at $45) to attend the game, click here, call 494-3194 or 800-49-SPORT, or visit the Athletic Ticket Office Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.



Reservations will be taken through 10 p.m. ET Sunday for the Official Purdue Bowl Tour and Game Day Tailgate, both co-sponsored by the John Purdue Club, Purdue Alumni Association and Purdue University. Click here or call the Bowl Tour hotline at 888-471-3032.

The Boilermakers are back in postseason play and will take on Western Michigan at beautiful Ford Field. Kickoff is set for 4:30 p.m. ET on Dec. 27.
