Fifty years have passed since Indiana last claimed a B1G title and made the trip to Pasadena to play in a Rose Bowl game. The Hoosiers will honor that team during the home finale against Rutgers.
The 1967 team was the last Indiana squad to claim a conference championship and make a trip to the Rose Bowl for the Jan. 1 bout against USC. In addition to honoring the team during the game, the Hoosiers will sport a “Block I” helmet stick and will also sport a helmet decal honoring the B1G champions.
Indiana released a preview of its uniform combination dedicated to honoring that team against Rutgers.
