Photo: Purdue football field sinkhole forms after water main break


The Purdue football team has had its own struggles through the years, but now it is up to the university’s grounds crew to fix the mess on the field.

On Monday, a water main burst in the south end zone of Ross-Ade Stadium caused some flooding and a large sinkhole.

Shortly after, the school’s turf crew shared a photo of the damage.

On Tuesday, the turf crew provided an update as they got to work fixing the broken pipe.

It’s good to see they realized the issue quickly and got it patched it up.

It also helps that Purdue is on the road this weekend against Illinois, so the field will have more than a week to settle and prepare for the Oct. 15 matchup against Iowa.
