BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana (8-4, 5-4 B1G East) will face Tennessee (7-5, 5-3 SEC East) in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl, it was announced on Sunday afternoon. The game will be held at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Fla., on Thursday, Jan. 2, with a 7 p.m. ET kickoff on ESPN.

The Hoosiers will be making their 12th bowl appearance, their first in the state of Florida and their third in the last five seasons.

This will be IU’s second bowl under head coach Tom Allen, who made his debut at the 2016 Foster Farms Bowl and recently signed a new seven-year contract paying $3.9 million annually.

Tennessee leads the all-time series, 1-0, with a 27-22 win in the 1988 Peach Bowl.

The Hoosiers have won eight games for just the eighth time in program history and the first time since 1993. Indiana owns six eight-win (1905, 1979, 1987, 1988, 1993, 2019) and two nine-win (1945, 1967) campaigns.

IU’s five-conference wins are tied for its third-most in program history (1945, 1979, 1988, 1991, 1993, 2019). The school record for conference wins is six (1967, 1987).

The Hoosiers posted a winning conference record for the first time since 1993 (5-3).

On Nov. 10, Indiana entered the AP Poll (No. 24) for the first time since Sept. 20, 1994, and the Coaches Poll (No. 25) for the first time since Oct. 17, 1994.

Tennessee arrives with a five-game winning streak. Since a 35-13 loss to Alabama the Volunteers have beaten South Carolina 41-21, UAB 30-7, Kentucky 17-13, Missouri 24-20, and Vanderbilt 28-10.

Three players have rushed for more than 400 yards – Ty Chandler (620), Eric Gray (453) and Jim Jordan (424).

Quarterback Jarrett Guarantano completes 59.3 percent of his passes for 1,937 yards, 16 touchdowns and six interceptions.

Receiver Jauan Jennings has caught 57 passes for 942 yards and eight touchdowns. Marquez Callaway has 29 catches for 616 yards (21.3 average) and six TDs.
