Some Big Ten schools are for, against or on the fence about playing football on Friday nights. Indiana has a different outlook on the idea.
According to the Indianapolis Star, Indiana Director of Athletics Fred Glass confirmed the Hoosiers will make Friday night appearances in Big Ten conference games. However, they’ll only play on Friday once every three years.

Glass told the Indy Star the major concern is the potential for Hoosiers football to come between high school football around the state.
Indiana is the latest team to announce its stance on the Big Ten’s new initiative. Michigan, Wisconsin and Penn State have declined to play on Friday, while Northwestern and Illinois have no issue with it.
Ohio State, Iowa and Michigan State have agreed to play, but only under certain conditions.
