Indiana-Purdue cancel rivalry game again; bowl called off
The Indiana-Purdue rivalry game has been canceled again. It will be the first time in-state rivals have not met in a football season since the Spanish flu pandemic forced cancellations in 1918 and 19. Now, their rivalry game for the Old Oaken Bucket has been canceled for the second time in two weeks — and the third time this season. “As we stated last week, we know the history and tradition of this great rivalry game and how much it means to our current students, alumni and fans," they said Tuesday. The Hoosiers haven't won a bowl game since 1991 and Allen believes that would be a good way to wrap up a historic season.
