  11/30/20 - Michael Penix Jr.rSo/2023, Indiana, 6-2, 218 (DS#14 QB) + More +

  Indiana quarterback Michael Penix Jr. will miss the rest of this season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Coach Tom Allen made the announcement Monday. The junior was injured during the third quarter of Saturday's victory over Maryland. Jack Tuttle, a redshirt sophomore who started his career at Utah, will replace Penix. It's the third consecutive season Penix has had a season-ending injury. His freshman season also ended with a torn ACL in the same knee and Allen confirmed this injury was to the same knee. The 10th-ranked Hoosiers visit No. 18 Wisconsin on Saturday. - AP College Football

  Stevie Scott III ran for three touchdowns and No. 12 Indiana had three interceptions, three sacks and a game-changing safety in a 27-11 win over Maryland on Saturday. Freshman Tim Baldwin Jr. ran for a season-high 106 yards for the Hoosiers (5-1), who have won four straight at home. The safety midway through the third quarter gave the Hoosiers a 9-3 lead, and Indiana extended the margin to 17-3 on the ensuring possession. Scott scored on a 1-yard plunge and backup quarterback Jack Tuttle completed his first throw of the day - a 2-point conversion to Peyton Hendershot. Tuttle also led the Hoosiers to two fourth-quarter scores after replacing injured starter Michael Penix Jr. Maryland (2-2) moved the ball well in the first half but struggled in the red zone after a 21-day break stemming from a COVID-19 outbreak that caused the cancellation of two games.

Taulia Tagovailoa missed two open receivers for potential scores in the first half and was picked off twice in the red zone. Also, Joseph Petrino missed a 29-yard field goal wide left on the first possession of the game. Penix struggled before heading to the locker room in the third quarter after suffering what appeared to be a right leg injury while he was getting tackled. He was 6 of 19 for 84 yards. Tuttle completed all five of his passes for 31 yards. Scott carried 24 times for 80 yards and Baldwin took advantage of his first significant action this season as Indiana rushed for a season-high 234 yards. Baldwin carried the ball 16 times after logging one carry in the Hoosiers' previous five games. - Indiana/AP College Football

  Indiana netted minus-1 yards on 16 rushes against Ohio State, a nice statistic for the Buckeyes on paper but a bit hollow because the Hoosiers were playing from behind most of the game and had all but abandoned the run. Still, no Big Ten opponent had netted zero or negative yards on the ground against Ohio State since Northwestern ran 33 times for no yards in 2007. Indiana's 16 rushing attempts were its fewest in at least 20 years. The stat sheet showed the Hoosiers ran four times in the second half, but one was a sack. - AP College Football

  No. 25 Tulsa is ranked in The Associated Press college football poll for the first time in 10 years and No. 9 Indiana is set to play the first top-10 matchup in program history. The AP Top 25 was mostly stagnant Sunday after four of the top five teams did not play and only one ranked team lost this weekend. Alabama is No. 1 for the second straight week, with 60 first-place votes. No. 2 Notre Dame received one first-place vote and No. 3 Ohio State got the other. The rest of the top eight was unchanged: Clemson is No. 4, followed by Texas A&M, Florida, Cincinnati and BYU. Indiana moved up one spot to ninth - the Hoosiers' best ranking since they were fourth in the 1967 poll - heading into a matchup with Ohio State on Saturday. Tulsa moved into the rankings after beating American Athletic Conference rival SMU, knocking the Mustangs from the Top 25. - AP College Football

  Michael Penix Jr. threw for 320 yards and hit Ty Fryfogle for two touchdown passes as No. 10 Indiana remained unbeaten with an easy 24-0 victory over Michigan State on Saturday. The Hoosiers (4-0, 4-0) set up a showdown next weekend against Ohio State, the only other unbeaten team in the Big Ten East. Penix threw two interceptions in the first half, but that didn't matter much. The Spartans (1-3, 1-3) were just as sloppy - to the point where quarterback Rocky Lombardi was pulled in the second quarter. Fryfogle had 11 catches for 200 yards - both career highs. He did most of that in the first two quarters, when all the game's scoring occurred. Indiana has won its first four Big Ten games for the first time since 1987, and the Hoosiers beat Michigan State for the Old Brass Spittoon for only the second time in the last 12 meetings. Since beating rival Michigan on Oct. 31, the Spartans have lost their last two games by a combined 73-7. - AP College Football

  Michael Penix Jr. passed for 342 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 13 Indiana beat No. 23 Michigan 38-21 on Saturday for its first victory against the Wolverines in 33 years. With a chunk play here, a free play there and a few dinks and dunks thrown in to keep drives alive, Penix helped Indiana snap a 24-game losing streak in the series - tied for the longest active skid in the Football Bowl Subdivision. It was the Hoosiers' first win against the Wolverines since Oct. 24, 1987, just their second in 41 games and only the second in the 21 games played at Memorial Stadium. The Wolverines (1-2) still don't have a top-15 road win since beating Notre Dame in 2006. The loss to Indiana could turn up the pressure on coach Jim Harbaugh in his sixth season at Michigan. - AP College Football

  11/07/20 - Tiawan MullenSo/2023, Indiana, 5-10, 182 (DS#7 CB) + More +

  Preseason All-Big Ten Indiana sophomore cornerback Tiawan Mullen isn't the first player that comes to mind as a pass rush threat. Yet Mullen showed a knack for getting the quarterback on the ground last Saturday against Rutgers, posting 2.5 sacks on well-disguised blitzes from the secondary. Mullen said improving on blitzes was one of his priorities during the offseason. Last season, in addition to a Big Ten-high 13 passes defended, Mullen had 3.5 tackles for loss but no sacks. "I'm a much better blitzer than last year," Mullen said. "That's something I wanted to work on, and I showed it versus Rutgers, and I just felt like when it's time, when my name is called to go get the quarterback, I'm going to get the job done." Mullen's 2.5 sacks lead the Hoosiers through two games. "He is a guy that is crafty and explosive," Indiana defensive coordinator Kane Wommack said. "He blitzes about two inches off the ground, so he is hard to pick up. That can always be a difficult thing as well when you play low and fast. You find creative ways to get in the backfield." - Herald Bulletin

  Sophomore quarterback Michael Penix Jr. made sure there was no letdown for Indiana on Saturday at Rutgers. Penix passed for 238 yards and three touchdowns, allowing the No. 17 Hoosiers to pull away in the second half and beat the Scarlet Knights 37-21 at SHI Stadium. Coming off its 36-35 upset of then-No. 8 Penn State last week, Indiana (2-0) found itself in sole possession of first place in the Big Ten East before Penn State's kickoff against Ohio State later Saturday night. IU also is off to a 2-0 start in Big Ten play for the first time since 1991. "To start the season 2-0 is huge for our program," Indiana coach Tom Allen said. Penix, who started the game 3-of-10, completed 14 of his final 16 attempts. He connected with tight end Peyton Hendershot on a pair of second-half touchdowns and found senior receiver Whop Philyor five times for 137 yards. "Those two guys found a way to get open today," Penix said. "They made spectacular catches. They were consistent. And that's just all it was, simple execution." - Herald Bulletin

  Indiana's receivers had a number of drops early before becoming more sure-handed as the game progressed. Tight end Peyton Hendershot overcame an early drop to finish with six catches for 34 yards and two TDs. "I was upset with myself because I only had one or two drops all last year, and I already have two drops," Hendershot said. "I am just letting the team down. My coaches said you are going to make plays, just don't think about it and move on. I just got lost in the game. I was not thinking about it anymore. When the ball was coming, I was not thinking about it anymore. It was not instinct. I felt lost in the game, and I just got going. The catches just started coming and making it easier." - Herald Bulletin

  The secondary as a unit performed best, but it's hard to overlook Penix. He accounted for four touchdowns, misfired on just one pass in the second half and, by the end of the game, looked like he was beginning to hit full stride. No player or coach lost more to the disrupted offseason than the time Penix and Sheridan didn't get to spend building their rapport as quarterback and play caller. Allen did what he could to structure his preseason in a way that mitigated some of that, but it was never going to make up for all lost time. Some of that would have to happen in games, and we've seen the growing pains over the last two weeks. Saturday, we also saw the potential. Penix's second half was outstanding. - Indianapolis Star/News

  Michael Penix Jr. threw three touchdown passes and ran for another score as No. 17 Indiana beat mistake-prone Rutgers 37-21 on Saturday in a game that almost included a crazy TD. Penix had touchdown tosses of 15, 2 and 1 yard. He also scored on a quarterback sneak as the Hoosiers (2-0, 2-0 Big Ten) followed up their stunning win over then-No. 8 Penn State last week. The wacky play came with less than two minutes to go when Rutgers seemed to score on a 55-yard play that involved at least seven laterals. After a review, however, it was ruled that receiver Shameen Jones' pitch was an illegal forward pass, spoiling a wild celebration for the Scarlet Knights.

Ty Fryfogel caught the 15-yard TD pass just 1:43 after Penix scored, giving the Hoosier a 20-7 halftime lead. Tight end Peyton Hendershot caught the short TD flips in the second half and Charles Campbell added three field goals. Noah Vedral threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Bo Melton and Kay'Ron Adams scored on a 37-yard run for Rutgers (1-1, 1-1). The game was Greg Schiano's at home since starting his second stint as coach with a win at Michigan State last week. Vedral also threw three interceptions. - Indiana/AP College Football
