“Our students have been fantastic all season and we really want them to be able to experience a bowl game in one of the world’s truly iconic sporting venues,” said Glass in a statement. “It costs $10 for a student to see a game in Bloomington and we wanted it to be the same for them to cheer on the Hoosiers in the Big Apple. We are thrilled to offer them these greatly discounted tickets so they can help cheer us on to victory on the 26th.”
After a successful 6-6 campaign (2-6 in the Big Ten) the Hoosiers are back in a bowl game for the first time in eight years. Indiana last played in a bowl game when it lost to Oklahoma State in the Insight Bowl on December 31, 2007.
The Hoosiers will take on a Duke Blue Devil team that is 7-5 (4-4 in the ACC). The game is set for December 26 at Yankee Stadium, with the game being televised by ABC at 3:30 PM ET
