The Hoosiers will take on the Michigan State Spartans at 7 p.m. in Bloomington
Head Coach Tom Crean praised the fans on his Twitter, writing “Hoosier Nation is already lining up for the game. We have the BEST STUDENTS AROUND!”
Some fans even grilled out, passing the hours until game time. Jeremy Gray with Indiana Athletics told Fox59 pizzas were passed out at 2 p.m. to students waiting in line.
The Hoosiers are ranked No. 18 in the AP Poll and No. 20 in the USA Today/Coaches poll. The Spartans, with a 13-3 winning record, sit at No. 5 in both polls.
The Spartans defeated the Hoosiers at MSU in late December. However, the Hoosiers have been known to take out top teams, defeating the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Kentucky Wildcats early in the season.
