For the first time in 25 seasons, IU football is ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 poll.
The Hoosiers check in at No. 24 overall in the AP Poll and were ranked No. 25 in the Amway Coaches Poll presented by USA Today Sports earlier Sunday.
The news comes a little over a week following IU’s 34-3 win over Northwestern in the first November night game in Memorial Stadium history. The Hoosiers are now riding a four-game winning streak in conference play, their first of that kind since 1993.
Before Sunday, IU had the longest active streak of Power-5 schools to not be ranked in the poll. Purdue, last ranked in 2007, now holds that title.
IU, 7-2 overall and 4-2 in Big Ten play, travel to No. 9 Penn State on Nov. 16 for now a top-25 matchup.
The Hoosiers have a chance on Tuesday to be in the top-25 of the College Football Playoff Rankings for the first time in program history.
