It’s BYOS (bring your own shovel) for Purdue for Iowa today.
Not only does Purdue have the task of taking on the No. 6 team in the country, but the Boilermakers must do it in a frozen tundra.
Check out Iowa’s Kinnick Stadium, which was buried under nearly a foot of snow Saturday morning.

Crews are still working to clear the snow before the Hawkeyes’ 11 a.m. kickoff. The good news is that the snow is supposed to let up before game time, according to weather.com‘s hourly forecast.
Iowa is still on the outside looking in of the College Football Playoffs, but will almost assuredly be in if it wins out – including the Big Ten championship game in two weekends.
