Purdue and Indiana Mutually Agree to Cancel Bucket Game

For Immediate Release

Dec. 9, 2020

 

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue and Indiana have mutually agreed to cancel Saturday’s scheduled football game at Memorial Stadium in Bloomington due to rising COVID-19 numbers at both schools.

 

“We’re certainly disappointed that we had to cancel the Old Oaken Bucket game. We both understand the history and tradition of one of the best rivalries in college football, but the safety and well-being of our student-athletes, coaches and staff is our primary priority. We will continue to monitor the situation on both campuses and listen to the advice of our medical professionals.” – Joint statement from Purdue Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Mike Bobinski and Indiana Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Scott Dolson
