A look back at the photos: Purdue defeats Tennessee in overtime to win Music City Bowl, 48-45. I was able to travel down to Nashville, Tenn. to covert Purdue football take on the Tennessee Volunteers in the TransPerfect Music City Bowl. My first time covering a game inside a NFL stadium, Nissan Stadium did not disappoint. The sheer amount on space the sidelines was great in itself compared to the cramped sidelines of Ross-Ade. Also 10/10 on the media hospitality as there was a space outside the photo work room on the first level that not only had coffee(Wrigley Field set the bar high) but kept the tables stocked with options during the entire event. The game started off pretty slow but picked up in the second half and ended in a tense moment with the field-goal that won the game. See some of the images below or catch the full gallery online.
A look back at 2021.
It was as strange as one might think; the Purdue Boilermakers traveled to Chicago on Saturday to take on the Northwestern Wildcats on Wrigley Field. Looking back, I regret not running up to the upper concourse the get some overalls of the stadium but after missing two big plays in the first quarter (a big reception from Jackson Anthrop due to an EMS worker walking past then stopping right in front of me and the other because I was too busy trying to change positions and got stuck behind a tv camera while changing positions as Purdue scored their first touchdown) I made the choice to stick on the field. The biggest obstacle yesterday was the limited space on the sidelines. While we had the entire west sideline to photograph from as the teams were sharing the east sideline, both end zones had a small section (about a third the length) we were able to photograph from due to the field being gemmed on the baseball field.
