Indiana announced that Tuesday night’s game against Iowa has been postponed after an eight-foot long metal facing fell from the rafters.

The debris damaged some seats in the stadium’s northwest corner, and the school’s engineers recommended the game be postponed until the cause of the accident could be discovered, according to Zach Osterman of the Indianapolis Star.

The game was to be played at 9 p.m. ET. A new time and date for the contest has not been announced.

Tbh they should have to forfeit the game. Keep ur stadium in working order or get the L. Iowa shouldn't be punished because you idiots can't build a proper stadium.

It probably collapsed under the weight of all those NCAA championship banners. Not a worry at the Kohl Center...
