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.

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.

UNC defensive coordinator John Papuchis met with the media following Wednesday’s practice to discuss his unit’s growth over the last month, why it’s still allowing a catastrophic play for a score each week, and about the unit’s overall attitude. *The biggest reasons the defense has progressed over the last month are, “I think it’s two things: One is there was a lot said early on about the continuity of a lot of the terminology of me taking over for coach Chiz, the reality is we had four guys in new roles coaching and I think it took a little bit of time for us as a group to know exactly what our guys were capable of handling in a given game week, and it took a little bit of time to sort out who the right 11 was to be out on the field.
