The Indiana Hoosiers and the Indiana State Sycamores will play in 2025 and 2027, the two schools announced on Tuesday.
Indiana will host Indiana State at Memorial Stadium in Bloomington on Sept. 13, 2025 and then two seasons later on Sept. 11, 2027.
Indiana will pay Indiana State a $475,000 guarantee for the 2025 game and a $500,000 guarantee for the 2027 game, per a copy of the contract posted to IU’s official athletics website.
The two schools first met in 1925 and have played six games overall. The Hoosiers won the most recent meeting 28-10 in 2014 to extend their lead in the series to 6-0.
“I appreciate Fred Glass and Anthony Thompson working with us and making this a reality,” Indiana State Director of Athletics Sherard Clinkscales said. “There is a plethora of options for IU to choose from and choosing Indiana State really means a lot.”
