IU announces schedule updates for 2018 and beyond

Indiana announced six kickoff times for the 2018 season on Thursday.

The Hoosiers will open the season with a 7 p.m. kickoff at Florida International on Saturday, Sept. 1. The game will be televised by CBS Sports Network.

IU’s Sept. 8 home opener against Virginia will kick off at 7:30 p.m. in a game that will be carried by Big Ten Network. BTN will also televise the following week’s noon game against Ball State at Memorial Stadium.

Indiana’s Oct. 6 trip to Ohio State will kick off at either 3:30 or 4 p.m. A television assignment will be announced at a later date.

This year’s Hoosier homecoming game against Iowa will kick off at noon on Oct. 13. That contest will be shown on one of ABC, ESPN or ESPN2.

A new wrinkle to this year’s IU schedule will be Friday night football. The Hoosiers will play at Minnesota on Friday, Oct. 26. in a game that will kick off at 8 p.m. on FS1.

In addition to updates to this season’s slate, IU also announced changes to future schedules.

The Hoosiers will host Eastern Illinois on Sept. 7, 2019, with their previously scheduled home game against Western Kentucky moving to Sept. 17, 2022.

Also in 2022, IU’s home game with Idaho has moved from Sept. 17 to Sept. 10. Indiana moved its 2022 home game against Charlotte to Sept. 28, 2024.

IU also announced that last year’s cancelled home game against Florida International has been rescheduled for Aug. 31, 2024.
