IU fans will have plenty of opportunities to watch the Hoosiers in Bloomington in 2024.
The Big Ten Conference announced the dates for the 2024 conference schedule, and the Indiana football program also released its 2024 non-conference opponents and dates.
The Hoosiers will play eight home contests during the 2024 season, with three non-conference matchups and five Big Ten home games. The Hoosiers will not have back-to-back road contests during the 2024 slate and play consecutive home games on three occasions. Kick times and television designations will be announced closer to the start of the 2024 season.
Indiana opens the season against FIU on August 31. It marks the third time in program history the two programs meet in a season opener and the first at Memorial Stadium. IU played FIU in the 2016 and 2018 season openers in Miami.
The first meeting with Western Illinois, a new addition to the schedule replacing a matchup with Louisville, follows on September 7 at home.
Then the Hoosiers finally get to return to the Rose Bowl.
The first Big Ten Conference game to feature one of the four new members will take place when Indiana travels to take on UCLA on September 14. It will be the first meeting between the two teams and IU’s first trip to the historic venue since the 1968 Rose Bowl team that finished 9-2 and won the Big Ten with a 6-1 record.
The final non-conference game arrives a week later versus Charlotte on September 21 before the Big Ten home opener against Maryland on September 28.
After a trip to Northwestern on October 5, Indiana will have an idle week in front of back-to-back home games versus Nebraska (10/19) and Big Ten newcomer Washington (10/26). The matchup with the Huskies will be fourth meeting between the two programs and first since 2003.
The Old Brass Spittoon will be up for grabs in East Lansing, Michigan on November 2 when Indiana travels north to face Michigan State.
IU won’t escape the two top tier former Big Ten East foes in 2024. Instead, the Hoosiers will face them back-to-back, with a rare second bye week in between.
Michigan heads to Bloomington for a November 9 contest and, after the second idle week, Indiana’s final road contest at Ohio State is slated for November 23.
A battle for the Old Oaken Bucket occupies its historic spot at the end of the regular season, as Purdue will head to Memorial Stadium for the 127th edition of the rivalry on November 30. While that game appears late on the calendar, it’s still the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
