Indiana football announced Monday that it has agreed to a three-game series with Ball State beginning with the 2018 season.

The 2018 and 2020 games will be playing at Memorial Stadium. Ball State is working with Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis to host the 2019 game there.

"We are thrilled to continue this series with Ball State," IU Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass said Monday in a release put out by the IU media relations department. "It's great for the fans of both programs and playing another state school has the added benefit of our financial support remaining within the state of Indiana."

Indiana opens the 2015 season at Memorial Stadium against Southern Illinois on Saturday, Sept 5. Tickets are on sale now. To order, contact the IU Athletics Ticket Office at 1-866-IUSPORTS or visit IUHoosiers.com.
