Indiana is heading to Florida for its first bowl game since 2016.

The Hoosiers punched their bowl ticket a while ago, but the team officially found out the destination on Sunday. That destination is the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Florida for a showdown with an SEC foe in Tennessee. It will be the second all-time meeting between the two schools.

Following Sunday’s announcement, head coach Tom Allen and AD Fred Glass discussed the upcoming bowl game. It is Indiana’s first trip to a Florida bowl game in program history.
