The 1967 Indiana Hoosiers football team represented Indiana University in the 1967 Big Ten Conference football season. They participated as members of the Big Ten Conference. The Hoosiers played their home games at Seventeenth Street Stadium in Bloomington, Indiana. The team was coached by John Pont, in his third year as head coach of the Hoosiers. To date, they were the last Indiana team to win the Big Ten Conference, and the last non Michigan or Ohio State team to win the league title (and consequently represent the conference in the Rose Bowl) until 1981, when Iowa won the conference crown.

In the battle for the Old Oaken Bucket, Indiana beat Purdue.
