The Ross-Ade Brigade is the official title of our student section for football games. Members enjoy early entrance to home football games, special events with the football team and pregame tailgating.
The Ross Ade-Brigade cheers loudest during the battle for the Old Oaken Bucket. One of the oldest trophies in all of college football, the bucket goes to the winner of the Purdue-Indiana game. The winner adds either a "P" or "I" link to the chain on the bucket. Purdue leads the overall series 74–41–6.
