The Butler-Hanover football game scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 20, at the Butler Bowl has been cancelled due to significant storm damage that has impacted the Hanover community. The game will not be rescheduled this season.
Butler Director of Athletics Barry Collier spoke with Hanover Athletic Director Lynn Hall on Monday (Sept. 15) morning regarding the situation at the southeastern Indiana college and this weekend's football game.
"The Hanover area was hit by heavy storms that moved through Indiana on Sunday (Sept. 14), and Hanover College is currently without power and water," said Collier. "Classes and extracurricular activities at Hanover have been cancelled, while they work to restore power and water, and the college will be closed until Sunday (Sept. 21). Right now, our thoughts are with Hanover, and we've offered to assist in any way that we can."
Butler season ticket holders may exchange their Hanover tickets for an equivalent number of tickets to any of the Bulldogs' remaining home contests, or seek a refund.
