WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Big Ten conference announced the approved 2022 football schedules across the conference Wednesday. Purdue was among several programs with location changes, including matchups against Nebraska and Wisconsin. 

Originally, the Boilermakers were scheduled to to host the Badgers at Ross-Ade Stadium on Oct. 22 and travel to play the Cornhuskers on Nov. 12. The locations for those matchups have since been changed, and Purdue will not play Nebraska on Oct. 15. 

During the 2021 season, Purdue faced off against Wisconsin at home and traveled to play Nebraska on the road. Rather than hosting the Badgers and playing the Cornhuskers on the road two years in a row, the locations of the games were changed. 

The Big Ten noted that, as in the past, select Saturday games across the conference will be moved to either Thursday or Friday.

The Boilermakers are coming off their first nine-win season since 2003, which featured a pair of top-five victories over Iowa and Michigan State. Purdue defeated Tennessee 48-45 in the Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tennessee, to end the year.
