One thing is certain for Indiana football: The Hoosiers are going bowling!
It has truly been a remarkable season for the team under head coach Tom Allen. After a pair of 5-7 seasons under Allen, Indiana has already hit bowl eligibility with a 7-3 record with two games left on the schedule. The Hoosiers now have a chance to win eight games for the first time since 1993.
As teams begin to become bowl eligible, certain bowls will send out representatives to see if a team would be a good fit for their postseason game. According to Zach Osterman with the Indy Star, one such representative will be on hand for Saturday’s game against Michigan:
The Music City Bowl will have a representative in Bloomington this weekend for IU’s senior-day matchup with Michigan, as the Nashville-based game reviews the Hoosiers for possible postseason selection.
Scott Ramsey, president and CEO of the Music City Bowl, told IndyStar on Tuesday he plans to attend.
Obviously, that does not mean the Hoosiers are automatically going to the Music City Bowl. There is a complicated and lengthy pecking order, and Indiana could still improve its bowl destination. However, it is good to see some bowls already taking an interest in Allen’s squad.
