Indiana University Hoosiers

Team History

Indiana University first played football in 1887, and along with The University of Iowa, was admitted to the conference in 1899, nearly four years after the original seven met to establish what would become the Big Ten. Hoosier success has come sporadically, with conference titles coming in 1945 and 1967.

The current Memorial Stadium opened in 1960, and it replaced Memorial Stadium (later Tenth Street Stadium) which had been the Hoosier home since 1925. Current capacity is 53,929 with a record 56,223 witnessing the 1969 game against Purdue. Seven Consensus All Americans have suited up for IU.
