WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — As the renovations at Ross-Ade Stadium continue this off-season, Purdue is looking to name the field that the Boilermakers play on. Who it would be named after, however, has yet to be announced. 

According to the Purdue Board of Trustees agenda for Friday Dec. 6, university president Mitch Daniels will ask the board to approve the naming of the field. It's the latest addition to come to the stadium.

Purdue is in the middle of tearing down its old video board to make way for one of the largest in the NCAA. The board is set to be finished by the start of next football season. The university also debuted a new ribbon board and the Tyler Trent T2 Student Gate for the 2019 season. Purdue installed lights at the stadium prior to the 2017 season

The field at Ross-Ade has never been named. 

News 18 will be at Friday's meeting.
