Indiana Football is Going "Bowling"

BLOOMINGTON, IN (WFIE) - The Indiana Hoosiers football team is going "bowling".

After getting their sixth win of the season last week over Purdue, they clinched a berth in a college football bowl game.

Sunday, they found out where they're headed to the New Era Pinstripe Bowl, played in New York's Yankee Stadium.

The baseball field is converted into a football field, to play the game in the Yankees' home ballpark.

The Hoosiers' opponent will be (7-5) Duke out of the ACC Conference.

The game is December 26.

It's the first bowl game for the Indiana football program, since 2007, when they played Oklahoma State, in the Insight Bowl.

It's also the first bowl game, for head coach Kevin Wilson, since he's been at IU.
