Come out swinging: Indiana unveils fiery hype video for Outback Bowl matchup with Ole Miss
Some teams might have issues getting motivated to play in bowl season, but do not expect Indiana to have those problems on Saturday.
After a 6-1 regular season, the Hoosiers narrowly missed out on a chance to play for the B1G Championship. A tight loss to Ohio State – and a rule change at season’s end by the conference – left Indiana on the outside looking in during Champions Week.
Making matters worse, Tom Allen’s squad was further dropped down the bowl slate as the New Year’s Six passed on Indiana and the Citrus Bowl went with Northwestern.
Indiana is also rolling with a special game jersey for Saturday’s Outback Bowl that will not feature the traditional “B1G” logo. Allen went on to explain that the goal is to emphasize the program mantra of “LEO” and is not a shot at the conference, but there’s no denying Indiana is fired up to make a statement.
That is especially on display with Saturday morning’s hype video for the showdown with Ole Miss. It is fiery from start to finish and is the perfect way to head into kickoff.
