It never seems to fail that in the myriad of different themed nights college and professional sports teams have every year, a “Star Wars Night” makes an appearance. It almost seems obligatory for it to happen because, for some reason, sports fans love to get drunk and dress up like Chewbacca.
Wednesday is the Indiana Hoosiers’ “Star Wars Night” and they seem pretty excited about it. They released a Star Wars credit-themed hype video for the game against Nebraska and it is pretty awesome.
Fans will likely turn out in droves for the game because 1. It’s freaking Star Wars and 2. The Hoosiers are pretty good this year. The team is 20-6 this year and are fighting for some momentum heading into the Big Ten tournament in just a few weeks.
A good showing there could land them a pretty decent seeding in the NCAA Tournament in March. It should be a very exciting night on Wednesday.
