Indiana's first 4-0 start in 25 years, coupled with a showdown with defending national champion and No. 1-ranked Ohio State, has made Saturday's 3:30 p.m. matchup in Bloomington between the two teams an enticing one for many fans.
Memorial Stadium is sold out for Saturday's game, and the crowd is expected to be one of the four largest in program history, according to a press release from Indiana athletics. It's the first time the stadium has been sold out since the Michigan game in 2010.
Here is the full release from IU athletics:
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana University Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass today announced that Saturday's home football game against No. 1 ranked and defending national champion Ohio State is sold out. The capacity crowd of 52,929 marks the first sell out at Memorial Stadium since the Michigan game in 2010, and just the second since the expanded and enclosed North End Zone was constructed in 2009. A crowd of 52,929 will place this Saturday's game among the four highest attended home games in Indiana football history.
"On behalf of our football program and especially our players, I want to thank our student body and Hoosier Nation for their overwhelming response," said Glass. "This sell-out crowd reflects that people are excited about this team and ready to give our players a terrific environment for them to compete against the defending National Champions."
Kickoff for Saturday's game is at 3:30 p.m. ET. Due to the sell out crowd and construction on IN SR 37, fans are encouraged to arrive early and get to their seats early. Traffic and parking information can be found here: Football Traffic/Parking Information.
