    Bloomington, Ind. - Indiana University Department of Athletics has released the 2002 football schedule. The Athletics Administration and Football Program have been working together to contract a sixth home game for the upcoming season.

    The NCAA now permits Division I schools to schedule a 12th regular-season football game in those years in which there are 14 Saturdays from the first permissible playing date through the last playing date in November.

    The 2002 schedule is as follows:

    August 29 or 31 - Home Opener TBA
    September 7 - at Utah
    September 14 - at Kentucky
    September 21 - CENTRAL MICHIGAN
    September 28 - at Ohio State
    October 5 - Open Weekend
    October 12 - WISCONSIN
    October 19 - IOWA (Homecoming)
    October 26 - at Illinois
    November 2 - at Northwestern
    November 9 - MICHIGAN STATE
    November 16 - PENN STATE
    November 23 - at Purdue

    The NCAA noted that a 12th game would generate revenue for institutions without lengthening the season, and football student-athletes would not have to return to school early from summer vacation as they currently have to do for preseason games.

    Mark your calendar as the Hoosiers battle conference foe Iowa on October 19th, during the annual homecoming game. Game times will not be announced until television and the Big Ten Conference makes its decisions.
