Purdue faces rematch with Michigan in Big Ten opener

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue will visit Michigan on Dec. 1 in a rematch of last season’s Big Ten championship game.

The schedule was announced Tuesday after conference officials announced the league schedule.

It’s the only time the schools square off during the 2018-19 season.

The Boilermakers open the season Nov. 6 against Fairfield. The non-conference schedule also includes games against Ball State on Nov. 19, at Florida State on Nov. 28 and against Notre Dame on Dec. 15 in Indianapolis.

Purdue could face Ball State twice in the first month since both schools will be playing in a tournament in Charleston, South Carolina.

The Boilermakers host rival Indiana on Jan. 19 and will visit Bloomington on Feb. 19.
