Purdue's streak of non-sellouts is over.
For the first time since Joe Tiller's last game as coach in 2008, the Boilermakers sold out Ross-Ade Stadium with an annoucned crowdd of 60,042.
After winning two of their first three games, Boilermakers' tickets started selling briskly with only about 1,000 remaining Saturday morning as fans started crowding the parking lots. Those didn't take long to sell either, even on the warmest game day in West Lafayette since a 90-degree kickoff aganinst Middle Tennessee State in 2011.
It was the largest crowd since a heavily partisan Notre Dame crowd (61,555) attended a game on Oct. 1, 2011. And it marked the first time since Nov. 2, 2013 more than 42,000 attended one of Purdue's home games.
