Duke, Indiana set for 2015 New Era Pinstripe Bowl

Duke and Indiana are set to meet in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium.

Kickoff for the annual bowl game is scheduled for today at 3:30 p.m. ET. It's just the fourth meeting ever between the Blue Devils (7-5) and Hoosiers (6-6) and the first since 1984. For Duke, it's the program's fourth consecutive trip to a bowl game and 12th all-time. Indiana, meanwhile, is making its first postseason appearance since 2007 and 10th all-time.

"The experience that New York City, our Bowl game and Yankee Stadium offer during the holiday season is second to none," Mark Holtzman, executive director of the New Era Pinstripe Bowl, said in a statement. "We are delighted to play a part in helping to create what will undoubtedly be a memorable experience for all."

The New Era Pinstripe Bowl was established in 2010 and has a multiyear agreement with the Big Ten and ACC conferences. Attendance for the game has increased in each season since the inaugural contest, reaching a high of 49,012 last year for a matchup between Penn State and Boston College.
