SDSU faces Indiana for the first time. The Hoosiers finished ninth in the Big Ten conference, finishing with an 18-13 record.

Indiana is the first Big-Ten team to travel to Brookings. The Jackrabbits have faced three Big-Ten schools since moving to Division I, defeating the University of Minnesota and the University of Wisconsin, but losing to Purdue University.
