Defensive back Bryant Fitzgerald holds his hands in the shape of a heart prior to Indiana’s football game against Idaho on Sept. 11, 2021, at Memorial Stadium. Indiana will play No. 8 Cincinnati on Saturday in front of a sold out crowd at Memorial Stadium.

Indiana football will take on the University of Cincinnati at noon Saturday at Memorial Stadium in Bloomington.

The Hoosiers have a 1-1 record after falling to No. 5 Iowa on Sept. 4 and defeating the University of Idaho on Sept. 11. The top-ten Bearcats have a 2-0 record after defeating Murray State University and Miami University of Ohio to open their season.

The game is sold out — the first Memorial Stadium sellout since 2017. Allen and players said they appreciated the home crowd's energy during a press conference Monday, and expect the same this weekend.

Fans and students are encouraged to arrive early to the stadium Saturday. Gates open at 10 a.m., with pregame festivities taking place throughout the morning.
