* Michigan State won the 1994 game, 27-21, however the victory was later forfeited due to rules NCAA violations.
The series is now a permanent part of the schedule for the teams as Michigan State and Indiana are cross-division rivals. Prior to the expansion of the Big Ten in 2011, there were stoppages in the series because the schools were not protected rivals in the rotating conference schedule (note no game in 1999 and 2000, and again in 2009 and 2010).
In April 2013, the Big Ten announced a plan to realign its divisions geographically for the 2014 season when Maryland and Rutgers join. Indiana and Michigan State are both in the East under the tentative plan.
