Purdue will be without star receiver Rondale Moore when it opens its season against Iowa on Saturday.
The school announced on Friday that Moore won't be available for the game, and officials did not provide additional information on his absence.
The Boilermakers will also be without head coach Jeff Brohm after he tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday. Brohm is currently self-isolating at home for 10 days and Purdue petitioned the NCAA Football Rules Committee to allow him to call into the coaches' box to communicate with his staff during Saturday's game. However, The Athletic's Nicole Auerbach reports the school's request was denied.
