Bowl info from IU

Here is a Q&A posted by the IU Athletics Department giving some basic information about the prospects of IU getting a bowl bid.

Among the highlights:

  • • No decision from the bowl committees is expected until after Dec. 2, when the other conference championships have been decided. (Another reason the Big Ten should stretch its schedule through Thanksgiving.)
  • • The Big Ten has seven contracted bowl slots and eight teams with a record of 7-5 or better.
  • • The bowl committees have no obligation to select a team based on order of finish. The Rose Bowl gets the Big Ten champion (Ohio State). The other six bowls pick teams in the following order: Capital One, Outback, Alamo, Champs Sports, Insight and Motor City.

It appears the Hoosiers have at least another two more nervous weeks before learning their fate.
