Foster Farms Bowl 2016 By Evan De Stefano

The following photos serve as a visual timeline of my week covering the Foster Farms Bowl for Indiana University, as well as photos I was able to take during down time on the trip. Indiana played Utah at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, CA on December 28th, 2016. Indiana fell to Utah 26-24, a second consecutive bowl loss for the Hoosiers.

Monday was the Foster Farms Bowl Presser with representatives from each team, the coaches, and executives from FOX Sports. Photos: (Top) Head IU Coach Tom Allen, (Left) Foster Farms CEO Laura Flanagan, (Right) IU Offensive Lineman Dan Feeney.
Monday afternoon was the official team walk through at Levi's Stadium. Players were able to familiarize themselves with the stadium and take team photos on the field. At this point players had already been in California for three days and practiced at locations closer to the city.
