Indiana University’s athletic programs are better than Purdue.
Of course you already knew that, but for 2019 it has once again been confirmed.
After a late rally that saw IU score points in 11 of its final 14 opportunities, the Hoosiers have claimed the 2019 Governor’s Cup.
Indiana won by a close margin of 10.5 to 9.5 and announced their victory via Twitter:

IU now has a 8-5-2 record against Purdue in the competition over its 15-year history.
The Governor’s Cup measures head-to-head competition between the two schools in all men’s and women’s athletic programs.
According to iuhoosiers.com:
“Each sport can earn one point toward the overall championship. A total of 19 or 20 points can be won, depending on the number of meetings between the teams in various sports. The winner of regular season head-to-head competition earns the point for its institution. Should the teams split or tie in regular season competition the point is split between the two institutions.
If the two institutions do not compete in head-to-head regular season competition, the team that places higher at the Big Ten Championship will earn the point. Should they tie in conference championship competition, the point will be split. In the sport of track & field, three-way meets that are scored as dual meets do not count as head-to-head competition.”
