Acquiring tickets for IU-Michigan

Acquiring tickets for IU-Michigan

My wife and I are planning to make the trip from South Carolina to Bloomington for the October 2 game. Meanwhile, I need some advice on how it is best to get tickets for the game. My brother-in-law will be moving up in August to work on his PhD at Indiana. He would do his best to get tickets using his Indiana connections (and I'm guessing that might be cheapest) I don't know if that would be best. Neither my wife nor I are Hoosier fans, and while I doubt the Indiana crowd would be ravenous, I'm also guessing the Michigan side of things might be more enjoyable for my first Michigan game since 1996.

Would you suggest that I try to get tickets from the official means through U of M, or should I try to get them through Stub-hub, etc.?

Also, for those of you who have been to Indiana, what stadium sections should I avoid- or would that even be a factor if I should stick with the visiting fan sections?

Any other advice about the visit to Bloomington is appreciated. It's a long way off, but I want it to be a good experience for both of us.
