Purdue will meet Indiana State next Saturday at 3 p.m. — in advance of football's 7:30 p.m. game against Nebraska — in an exhibition game to benefit hurricane relief efforts. In the wake of the devastation in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and other affected regions, the NCAA has given a one-year allowance for schools to play an additional third exhibition to raise money for relief. Normally, teams would be limited to two exhibitions. This year, Purdue's were to be Carroll College and a private scrimmage vs. West Virginia. Per Purdue, tickets will be $10 for adults, $5 for Purdue students and can be purchased online beginning at 5 p.m. Friday or purchased at the Athletic Ticket Office on game day.

Game of the Week: #21 Auburn at Arkansas A week after the brutal loss
On Sept. 15, coaches from NC State, Georgia and Florida State, among others, were on the sidelines at Harding High in Charlotte to watch the Rams host state power and city-rival Mallard Creek High. Mallard Creek would prevail 30-9 over Harding, but the game was closer than that as Harding actually controlled the action for most of the three quarters before a series of turnovers doomed its chances. NC State head coach Dave Doeren and tight ends/fullbacks coach and special teams coordinator Eddie Faulkner were there to watch four-star lineman Jordan Davis from Mallard Creek and four-star junior running back Quavaris Crouch, four-star offensive lineman Jovaughn Gwyn and three-star defensive back Malik Dunlap from Harding, among likely others.
