"The capacity crowd of 52,929 marks the first sell out at Memorial Stadium since the Michigan game in 2010, and just the second since the expanded and enclosed North End Zone was constructed in 2009," the release states. "A crowd of 52,929 will place this Saturday's game among the four highest attended home games in Indiana football history."

"On behalf of our football program and especially our players, I want to thank our student body and Hoosier nation for their overwhelming response," said Indiana Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass, according to the release. "This sell-out crowd reflects that people are excited about this team and ready to give our players a terrific environment for them to compete against the defending National Champions."

Kickoff for Saturday's game is at 3:30 p.m. ET. Due to the sell-out crowd and construction on IN SR 37, fans are encouraged to arrive early and get to their seats early.
