The Indiana Hoosiers bounced back from last weeks loss to rout Bowling Green, 42-10. It was one of the most impressive defensive efforts by an IU team in years.
The Hoosiers defense allowed just three points all game (the lone BGSU touchdown came off a blocked punt return). While IU gave up over 400 yards, they were solid with a short field and gave up just 136 yards rushing. Additionally, the Falcons converted just 8-of-20 third down attempts and were 2-for-6 on fourth down.
The Hoosiers also had a fumble recovery and interception.
Nate Sudfeld started for the Hoosiers and competed 65 percent of his passes for 335 yards and two touchdowns. Cody Latimer was the favorite target of the day, hauling in six passes for 137 yards and a touchdown.
The running back tandem of Stephen Houston and Tevin Coleman was particularly effective as well. Coleman had 130 yards and two touchdowns. Houston ran for 155 yards off 13 carries.
The Hoosiers overcame a plethora of early mistakes, including two failed fourth down attempts inside the 5-yard line. This was a great rebound win by a team that was dominated a week ago by Navy.
