After earning the two seed in the Big Ten Tournament, IU will face seven-seed Penn State at 4 p.m. Sunday at Bill Armstrong Stadium.

IU failed to win the outright Big Ten regular season championship after drawing against No. 7 Michigan State last weekend. No. 19 Michigan defeated No. 9 Maryland in double overtime, which resulted in Michigan's jumping four spots and winning the conference championship outright.

The last time IU and Penn State faced off was Oct. 10 at State College, Pennsylvania. The Hoosiers returned to Bloomington victorious after freshman midfielder Spencer Glass scored the lone goal of the game.

The winner of the quarterfinals matchup will move on to the conference semifinals against the winner of three-seed Michigan State and six-seed Ohio State. IU defeated Ohio State earlier in the season, 2-0, in Bloomington.
