The Purdue football team's game against Wisconsin has sold out.
The team's Twitter account confirmed all available tickets for the game had been sold Wednesday afternoon, a month before the matchup is scheduled to be played.
That's it. They are gone. No more tickets. Purdue vs. Wisconsin on Oct. 23 is 𝐒𝐎𝐋𝐃 𝐎𝐔𝐓. 𝐁𝐎𝐈𝐋𝐄𝐑 𝐔𝐏! pic.twitter.com/aR1D6Xuf4M— Purdue Football (@BoilerFootball) September 22, 2021
This will be the first time the teams have met since a 45-24 Badger beatdown in Camp Randall Stadium during the 2019 season. The two were scheduled to play again in Madison during the 2020 season, but a COVID-19 outbreak in Wisconsin's locker room canceled the game.
The last time the teams played in Ross-Ade Stadium, in 2018, the Badgers escaped West Lafayette with a 3-point, triple overtime victory on a last-second rushing touchdown from running back Jonathan Taylor.
This season's game is scheduled during Family Weekend, and the event likely contributed to the demand for tickets. Most hotels around campus have been fully booked for that weekend since the summer.
The game's kickoff time and broadcast information have not yet been announced. In the meantime, Purdue's next kickoff is 3:30 p.m. Saturday against Illinois in Ross-Ade. The contest will air on the Big Ten Network.
