Indiana Football Checks in at No. 7 in AP Poll for First Time Since 1967

This is the eighth-straight week Indiana has been ranked inside the top 25 and fifth time in the top 10 this season.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — For the fifth time this season, Indiana football is ranked inside the top 10 of the Associated Press Top-25 poll.

The Hoosiers checked in at No. 7 on Sunday, which is their highest ranking this season. Indiana was No. 8 the previous week and couldn't play against Purdue last week due to COVID-19 within both programs.

But, a number of top 10 teams suffered some losses, so the 6-1 Hoosiers moved up one spot.

This is Indiana's first time being ranked No. 7 in the AP poll since 1967. It's also tied for the third-highest ranking in program history.

This is also the eight-straight week Indiana has been ranked inside the top 25, which is just one week shy of the program record, which was nine-straight weeks in 1945.

Indiana is currently scheduled to play Purdue this Friday at 7:30 p.m. ET in Bloomington. Both teams are monitoring their COVID-19 situations this week in hopes of playing Friday night.
