Courtesy of ESPN.com’s Adam Rittenberg, Indiana is expecting a crowd of 52,929 at Memorial Stadium Saturday for its Big Ten home opener against Michigan.
This would be the fourth largest crowd in school history, and the largest turnout to attend a game not against either Purdue or Ohio State. The sellout will be Indiana’s first since 2007. And the last time Memorial Stadium sold out for a game against a team other than the Boilermakers or Buckeyes was 1992, when a No. 3 Michigan team came to Bloomington.
But will all those fans actually show up? The weather forecast in Bloomington doesn't look very good, with rain and temperatures in the mid-to-high-50s by gametime.
