HOOSIERS TO HOST THREE BTN PRIMETIME GAMES

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Three of Indiana Football’s eight 2013 home games will air in primetime on BTN, it was announced Monday afternoon. The Hoosiers season opener against Indiana State on Thursday, Aug. 29, will kick off at 7 p.m. ET.

The Navy game on Saturday, Sept. 7, is slated for a 6 p.m. start and the Sept. 21 Missouri game is set for an 8 p.m. kick.

This season marks the second time in school history the program will host eight games (2008). IU is 2-0 in Thursday season openers at Memorial Stadium, defeating Eastern Kentucky in 2009 and Towson in 2010.

Navy makes its first trip to Bloomington since 1986. The Hoosiers have won both meetings between the two programs at Memorial Stadium.

Indiana faces Bowling Green for the first time on Sept. 14 and wraps up the non-conference schedule against Missouri. IU is 6-2-2 all-time against the Tigers, including a 20-10 home victory the last time the two teams met on Sept. 26, 1992.

Following a bye week, the Hoosiers open Big Ten play against Penn State on Oct. 5. Indiana will then host Minnesota (Nov. 2) and Illinois (Nov. 9) before closing out the regular season and battling Purdue for the Old Oaken Bucket on Nov. 30.

 Tickets are on sale for the 2013 Indiana football season. To order, contact the IU Athletics Ticket Office at 1-866-IUSPORTS.
