  After another arduous rehab from surgery to repair a torn ACL, the second in the span of three years, Indiana quarterback Michael Penix Jr. is once again ready to line up under center in a season opener. Penix is set to start for the No. 17 Hoosiers on Saturday at No. 18 Iowa (3:30 p.m., Big Ten Network), declaring himself 100% after three weeks of fall camp. "As far as the trust level goes, I trust my knee," Penix said. "I trust that everything is OK. The trainers have been doing a great job of getting me back on the field, and I'm 100% confident that I'm going to have a great season this year." The plan throughout the offseason was to bring Penix along at a methodical pace after suffering the season-ending injury Nov. 28 against Maryland, but he exceeded expectations through every step of his rehab process.

He began throwing routes to his receivers in July, was a camp counselor at the Manning Passing Academy that month and took part in every fall practice. IU offensive coordinator Nick Sheridan said Penix has shook some rust off since the start of fall camp after not practicing in the spring but showed no physical limitations. "From a physical standpoint, he's the same Mike Penix that we've seen here," Sheridan said. "Still has a really strong arm, still moves very well, very instinctual player. I think going against our defense is a challenge each and every day, and I think that's been great for Mike. Just getting back into the live speed of it, the quickness of our defense challenges you in your decision making, in your ball placement, all those types of things." - Herald Bulletin
