Hoosier Hysteria, Indiana’s annual opening practice that officially tips off the season, has been set for Saturday, October 22 at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.

The first day NCAA Division I schools can begin practicing this season is Friday, Sept. 30, which is six weeks before the start of the regular season on Friday, Nov. 11.

Admission to Hoosier Hysteria is free, but fans are encouraged to bring a canned food item and donate it to Hoosier Hills Food Bank.

According to a release from IU athletics, “fans can expect games, music, contests, prizes and an up-close look at the Hoosiers prior to the start of the season.”

Indiana will not have a home football game on the weekend of Hoosier Hysteria as the Hoosiers travel to Evanston for a meeting with Northwestern.

Hoosier Hysteria is typically a major recruiting weekend for Indiana. Further details on the event will be released at a later date.
