THE BREAKFAST CLUB

No, we aren’t referring to the 1980’s Howard Hughes brat-pack movie. But when you see thousands of people, dressed in crazy costumes, lining the streets of West Lafayette in the wee hours of the morning, you will think it’s Halloween. In fact, this is what is referred to as “The Breakfast Club”; certainly a unique tradition in all of college football, people of all (legal drinking) ages, in all types of get-ups, cram into the bars for a pre-game breakfast and brew.
