Indiana football announced it would bring back the program’s spring football game via Twitter on Wednesday afternoon. The game is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 15 at Memorial Stadium.
It will coincide with the Hoosiers' final team spring practice of the year and will be the program’s first spring game since 2019. The event will allow fans to watch the team before the fall kickoff on Sept. 2 against the Buckeyes.
In a Daily Hoosier article from June 2022, Mike Schumann writes that Indiana did not have a spring game in 2020 or 2021 due to COVID-19. Head coach Tom Allen said prior to those years, the spring football games weren’t well attended.
Indiana joins Ohio State and Penn State as Big Ten conference teams having its game on April 15.
Fans can RSVP by filling out the form provided in the Indiana football Twitter post. Festivities for the day include a free tailgate party, games, giveaways and an on-field meet and greet with the Indiana football team.
