The release from IU sports information.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The Old Oaken Bucket Game against Purdue on Saturday, Nov. 21, will be televised on the Big Ten Network, it was announced today. The Hoosiers (4-6, 1-5 Big Ten) and Boilermakers (4-6, 3-3 Big Ten) will kick off at 3:30 p.m. EST at Memorial Stadium. All games can also be heard on the statewide IU Radio Network (Don Fischer, Pete Compise and Joe Smith) and on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio.

Closing out the road portion of its schedule, the Indiana football team (4-6, 1-5 Big Ten) heads to University Park, Pa., to battle No. 19/17/18 Penn State (8-2, 4-2 Big Ten). The Hoosiers and Nittany Lions will meet at Beaver Stadium (107,282) on Saturday, Nov. 14. Kickoff is set for noon EST and the game will be televised on the Big Ten Network.

Last weekend, IU dropped its third conference game by three points or less, as No. 24/22/21 Wisconsin pulled out a 31-28 victory in Bloomington. PSU fell for just the second time this season to No. 15/12/16 Ohio State, 24-7, in Happy Valley.


  1. thank goodness. The noon time would not give me enough time to grill and put enough beer away to deal with the mouthy PU fans!!!

  2. I love seeing 3:30 start times, especially for a game of this magnitude. It gives everyone plenty of time to get to Bloomington, it gives IU students plenty of time to wake up and get themselves “into the spirit”, and it gives everyone enough time to get home at a reasonable hour.

    The ’07 Bucket Game was at 3:30, and the atmosphere was marvelous from start to finish. Since it’s highly likely that this will be a match between two 4-7 teams, atmosphere could be all the motivation either team has got.
