Indiana Hoosiers head coach Kevin Wilson tweeted out Thursday afternoon that Indiana would be kicking off their match-up with Rutgers, for homecoming, on Saturday October 17th at 3:30pm. The Hoosiers and Scarlet Knights faced each other as Big Ten foes for the first time last November in New Jersey, a 45-23 IU defeat.
Last season the Hoosiers also kicked off homecoming at 3:30, but had scheduled it for the game against a top-10 team in Michigan State. It looks as if the homecoming schedulers have wised up and have given the Hoosiers a very beatable opponent. It is a good way to drum up interest as many alumni and students would like to see the Hoosiers come out victorious.
