“Quietest game day atmosphere ever”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

We went to Purdue for the first time to cheer on the Iowa Hawkeyes. We went anticipating local food vendors outside the stadium and fun, rowdy fans. No. It was so quiet, no vendors, no excitement. We decided to go on in to the stadium. Many of the restrooms don't open until 1/2 hour before game time. The food was not great. The brats were dull, no sauerkraut available. Nothing very interesting. The rest of the experience was fan-based. Purdue fans were nice people, and clearly dejected. It seemed as if half the sparse stadium were Hawkeye fans. We had a great time and a great win, but it was sad to see a mass exodus of Purdue fans by the fourth quarter.
