Indiana and its new head coach Tom Allen are heading west.
The Hoosiers will face No. 19 Utah in Foster Farms Bowl, which is set for 8:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Dec. 28. The game is played at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., and will be televised by Fox.
Indiana is 6-6 this season, going 4-5 in the Big Ten. It’s the second year in a row Indiana made a bowl game, as the Hoosiers reached the Pinstripe Bowl against Duke last season. The Hoosiers lost to the Blue Devils 44-41 in OT in controversial fashion on a field goal that was ruled no good.
Utah is 8-4 this season, ranking No. 19 in Sunday’s new College Football Playoff rankings. The Utes were once 7-1 but lost to Washington, Oregon and Colorado in three of their final four games.
The bowl game will be Allen’s first as Indiana’s new head coach. The former defensive coordinator took over after Indiana fired Kevin Wilson on Thursday.
