Purdue to open 2011 season against Middle Tennessee

By Tim K. -

The Purdue Boilermakers have added the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders to their 2011 football schedule, Purdue Director of Athletics Morgan Burke announced on Wednesday.

The game will take place on September 3, 2011 at Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette, Indiana. Purdue was previously scheduled to host Kent State on the same date, but the Golden Flashes opted out of the game in order to open the 2011 season at Alabama.

This will be the first ever meeting between the two schools.
