  Shaun Shivers will finish out his college career in the Big Ten. The former Auburn running back, who entered the transfer portal two days after the regular-season finale, announced Saturday that he has committed to Indiana. Shivers graduated from Auburn on Friday and will use his free year of eligibility granted by the NCAA due to the pandemic with the Hoosiers next season. The 5-foot-7, 189-pounder out of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., spent four seasons as a complementary piece in Auburn's backfield. He finished his Auburn career with 1,020 rushing yards and eight touchdowns on 201 carries, averaging 5.1 yards per attempt over the last four seasons, while also catching 38 passes for another 211 yards and a touchdown. - Birmingham News

  11/21/21 - Connor BazelakrSo/2024, Indiana, 6-3, 212 (DS#10 QB) + More +

  Connor Bazelak threw a 2-point conversion pass to Daniel Parker Jr. to lift Missouri to a 24-23 overtime victory over Florida on Saturday. The Tigers (6-5, 3-4 Southeastern Conference) drew within a point on Tyler Badie's 13-yard touchdown run, and Missouri coach Eli Drinkwitz elected to go for 2 rather than send the game to a second overtime with a PAT kick. Parker, a tight end, slipped undetected into the left side of the end zone and caught the lobbed pass. Badie rushed 27 times for 146 yards. Bazelak completed 15 of 26 passes for 165 yards and a touchdown. Florida (5-6, 2-6 SEC) got the ball first in overtime, and Emory Jones caught a 6-yard touchdown pass from wide receiver Trent Whittemore on a trick play to give the Gators a brief lead. Jones completed 20 of 32 passes for 261 yards and a touchdown.

Missouri entered the game with the nation's 118th-ranked defense, and Florida had yielded 92 points in its last two games. No matter - the defenses dominated in a stingy battle of field position and field goals. Missouri led 9-6 at halftime on three Harrison Mevis field goals. Florida finally broke the touchdown drought on its first drive of the second half. Jones hit Jacob Copeland on a 49-yard pass to set up a Dameon Pierce 2-yard scoring run. Missouri answered early in the fourth quarter when Bazelak connected with tight end Niko Hea on a 41-yard touchdown pass. Missouri missed a chance to take the lead with 1:04 left in regulation when Mevis - who had made 17 of 18 field-goal attempts this season - pushed a 46-yarder wide right. Florida coach Dan Mullen elected to run out the clock and take his chances in overtime rather than throw the ball. - Missouri/AP College Football

  09/26/21 - Stephen CarrrSr/2022, Indiana, 5-11, 211 (DS#58 RB) + More +

  Stephen Carr had 109 yards rushing and two touchdowns, and Michael Penix Jr. passed for 373 yards to help Indiana beat Western Kentucky 33-31 on Saturdya night. Penix completed a career-high 34 passes on 53 attempts. Ty Fryfogle had 10 receptions for 98 yards, including a 10-yard reception on third-and-8 with 1:55 to play that allowed the Hoosiers to run out the clock and escape with the victory.

Penix said he found a rhythm early and was able to continue it for most of the game, thanks to his trust in his reads of the Western Kentucky defense. "It was just simple rhythm and making my reads," Penix said. "It was just trusting my eyes and trusting my reads." Indiana, which had two touchdowns and four field goals on its first six possessions, never trailed. Carr scored on a 1-yard touchdown to cap an 11-play, 79-yard opening drive and make it 7-0 with 10:15 left in the first quarter. Penix completed 5 of 6 passes for 51 yards in the drive. Following a three-and-out by Western Kentucky, the Hoosiers went 81 yards in 11 plays and Penix scored on a quarterback sneak to push the lead to 14-0 about five minutes later. Western Kentucky's Bailey Zappe was 31-of-44 passing for 365 yards and three touchdowns. - Indiana/AP College Football

  Connor Bazelak squeezed a full day of production into one half Saturday as he led Missouri to a 59-28 victory over Southeast Missouri. Bazelak completed 21 of 30 passes for 346 yards and three touchdowns for the Tigers (2-1). He spread the ball to 10 receivers and connected on a 46-yard touchdown pass to D'onte Smith and a 52-yard TD pass to Chance Luper. Missouri running back Tyler Badie entered the game as the national leader in yards from scrimmage with 392.

He played sparingly Saturday against an overmatched FCS opponent, but he made the most of his limited chances, rushing nine times for 81 yards and two touchdowns and catching two passes for 14 yards and another score. Missouri built a 38-0 halftime lead. In the second half, Brady Cook and Tyler Macon played quarterback for the Tigers. On his first career pass attempt, Macon connected with JJ Hester down the middle on a 65-yard touchdown. Quarterback CJ Ogbonna carried 12 times for 96 yards for SEMO (0-3). Shamenski Rucker scored two rushing touchdowns for the Redhawks. - Missouri Football/AP College Football

  08/29/21 - Peyton HendershotrSr/2022, Indiana, 6-4, 238 (DS#29 TE) + More +

  After a record-setting sophomore season in 2019, Indiana tight end Peyton Hendershot admitted he didn't play up to his standards in 2020. But with a full offseason in the weight room and a summer spent getting on the same page with quarterback Michael Penix Jr., Hendershot is eager to show he can be counted on for big catches in IU's offense. "I feel probably the best I've ever felt my entire life," Hendershot said. "My speed, my strength, everything." Hendershot credited an offseason working with IU strength coach Aaron Wellman for his physical transformation. After playing at 265 pounds as a sophomore and 240 pounds last season, Hendershot entered fall camp at 252 pounds. "For a long time, I was really trying to figure out a good weight for me, a perfect weight," Hendershot said. "It's a really good weight for me, especially for running routes."

IU tight ends coach Kevin Wright expects the increased strength this season to show up in Hendershot's ability to block in the run game as well. "He's always been able to catch the football," Wright said. "He's always had good ball skills. But I think that what you will see is one of the better blocking tight ends in the Big Ten, and I think that's just a byproduct of all the work he's put in in the offseason. He's just one of the strongest guys on our team in general. So good ball skills, he's stronger, he's more physical and just he's played like a veteran throughout camp." Hendershot still finished with 23 catches for 151 yards and four TDs last season, including a two-TD game against Rutgers, to earn third-team All-Big Ten honors. - Herald Bulletin

  08/29/21 - Connor BazelakrSo/2024, Indiana, 6-3, 212 (DS#10 QB) + More +

  Just about every Missouri football player has answered an interview question about Connor Bazelak over the past few months. That's par for the course of being the starting quarterback for a Southeastern Conference program on the rise, especially for a player whose personality differs from the head coach responsible for putting Bazelak in that dignified position. Eli Drinkwitz's role in Bazelak's elevation from ACL surgery a little less than 20 months ago to one of the league's top passers will be on display from play No. 1 against Central Michigan in the Tigers' season opener Sept. 4.

Drinkwitz is the bombastic savant who jokes "Twitter isn't real" at press conferences. Bazelak isn't nearly as outspoken publicly, but his methodical strategy is effective. "Just a guy who is in total control," Missouri wide receiver Keke Chism said of Bazelak. "He's already a great leader, being so young. Just for him, it was all about taking that next step, and I feel like he's done that within this offense. He's learned so much in so little time to where he has total control of this offense. "And we're 100% behind him. You look at a guy that's going to be able to go to the line of scrimmage and dissect defenses and be able to make changes on the fly to put us in the right situations to be successful. So having a quarterback like that ultimately gives you a step ahead of your competition." - Columbia Daily Tribune

  Carr's track record coming out of USC is proven. He endured some injuries, including back and foot issues that sidelined him for a handful of games over the last three seasons. But with 1,329 yards rushing and 12 TDs rushing and 57 catches for 421 yards and one TD receiving, Carr brings a dual-threat element to the position that could spark IU's run game, which lacks big-play ability. The Hoosiers ranked 12th in the Big Ten in rushing at 108.6 yards per game and 13th in yards per carry at 3.1. "His strengths are he's very explosive," McCullough said. "His change of direction is high end, his ability to obviously make people miss. He runs with power. He runs with decisiveness...His pass protection is where I want it to be also. Obviously, he has great hands. We'll be able to see those on display as we continue to go through the season. The things to continue to work on is all the finer points of our offense, just continuing to work on those, seeing signals, different things like that, not relying on the quarterback to tell him the plays." Carr has already developed a rapport with his new teammates, who are fond of calling him "booda," a family nickname he earned before birth. "My mom, my big sister used to go up to her stomach when I was inside of her, used to go up to her stomach and say booda, booda, booda," Carr said. "It just stuck." - Herald Bulletin

  Jones said new IU defensive back Jonathan Haynes, who he coached at Ole Miss, is doing his best to adapt quickly after arriving from Ole Miss last week as a graduate transfer. "He's running around. He's giving us great effort," Jones said. "He's putting the time in. He's studying the defense, so he knows what's going on. He's a physical player where we can roll him into the box where teams are running the football. He doesn't mind coming down mixing it up." Haynes said he's looking forward to playing for the Hoosiers. "I felt like I needed a better opportunity, and coming here was a big opportunity for me playing in the Big Ten," Haynes said. "Even though I came from the SEC, I felt like the Big Ten can help me way more." - Herald Bulletin

  08/23/21 - Stephen CarrrSr/2022, Indiana, 5-11, 211 (DS#58 RB) + More +

  Indiana's first intrasquad football scrimmage of fall camp revealed a high-charged offense and the emergence of Southern California transfer running back Stephen Carr. Indiana coach Tom Allen said Monday the offense had the upper hand on the defense Saturday when the first and second teams squared off at Memorial Stadium. "Probably the first time that that's happened throughout fall camp with an extended amount of plays, so that was good to see as well," Allen said. "I thought our defense responded very well (Monday) to that, so it's a typical back and forth, but being the first full scrimmage, it's really the most amount of live tackling that we've done. Tackling was OK but needs to get better, which is usually the case for the first one."

Allen said the strong offensive execution began with the play of all three quarterbacks on the depth chart. Starter Michael Penix Jr., backup Jack Tuttle and freshman third-stringer Donaven McCulley all took snaps in the scrimmage. Allen said the 6-foot-1, 215-pound Carr has created some separation in the position battle for starting running back. "It's pretty obvious," Allen said. "He's a good back, and the thing about him is he does a lot of things well. He obviously can run the football, but he can pass pro(tect), and he has really good hands and just understands football, has played a lot of football, and some guys have that knack to them. He did some good things for sure." - Herald Bulletin

  08/22/21 - Miles MarshallrJr/2023, Indiana, 6-4, 212 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  Last season, Indiana junior wide receiver Miles Marshall proved to himself he could play and produce at the Big Ten level. The 6-foot-4, 212-pounder had 19 catches for 290 yards and a touchdown as IU's third starting receiver with Ty Fryfogle and Whop Philyor. Marshall often alternated with Philyor playing the slot, while lining up outside as well. "I come into this year with a whole lot of confidence," Marshall said. "Knowing I can do it, knowing I can get even better than what I did last year." With Philyor gone and Fryfolge, the reigning Big Ten receiver of the year, back, Marshall now finds himself as the No. 2 receiver on IU's depth chart. But Marshall said he's pushing himself to be the best receiver on the field each day in practice.

"I hope he embraces being a No. 1 receiver because, ultimately, Ty made a bunch of plays, so Ty is not going to sneak up on anybody," IU receivers coach Grant Heard said. Heard expects many defenses to follow the blueprint of Ole Miss in the Outback Bowl, which was to take Fryfogle away and force IU's other receivers to step up and make plays. "We have to make sure we have players across from them that can make plays and feel like they are the first option on every route and have that mindset so when the ball comes to them they are not surprised," Heard said. "They should expect the ball to come to them every play." - Herald Bulletin

  Early in camp, two under-the-radar players have stood out on Indiana's defensive front. Beau Robbins, a third-year sophomore from Carmel, and Weston Kramer, a grad transfer from Northern Illinois, have been making the most of their opportunities in practice according to IU defensive line coach Kevin Peoples. Peoples said the 6-foot-5, 260-pound Robbins, a four-star prospect and the No. 4 player from Indiana coming out of high school in 2019, is starting to tap into his potential. "Beau, just from Day 1 has improved drastically," People said. "His pass rush is much better. He's playing with much more confidence. He started playing better at the end of last season. He actually got into the bowl game, so I think, you know, Beau is just steady, and he's what this program is about, a guy that works hard, that loves Indiana football, that is smart and is going to give us everything he's got." - Herald Bulletin

  The IU secondary added a veteran piece late in the offseason as coach Tom Allen announced former Ole Miss safety Jon Haynes joined the program on Thursday. Haynes, a 5-11, 205-pound safety comes to Bloomington as a graduate transfer after playing two seasons at Ole Miss. Haynes was a three-star recruit out of Jones College in Ellisville, Miss. The senior is using his extra year of eligibility granted by the NCAA because of the COVID-19 pandemic to join the Hoosiers. Haynes played in 21 games during his Ole Miss career, amassing 86 tackles, two interceptions, five pass deflections and one tackle for loss. His last game with the Rebels was against IU in the Outback Bowl. - Indianapolis Star/News
