  Indiana quarterback Tayven Jackson smiled on camera when someone asked him during a Zoom call about handling the fast pace of Indiana's no-huddle offense. Transferring in from Tennessee, the program currently defining the tempo genre, Jackson is well-acquainted with playing football at a breakneck pace. The Volunteers' combination of speed and explosiveness made them perhaps the best all-around offense in college football last season, the practice of which Jackson now brings to Bloomington. "I don't think it's going to be faster than that," he said, "but I know (IU offensive coordinator Walt) Bell is an offensive genius. He's going to do everything he can to put our quarterbacks in the right positions to make plays."

Still, it's not what's on the field that Jackson draws from most, as he transfers what he learned in Knoxville with him to Bloomington. 'This was home.'Why QB Tayven Jackson is transferring to IU football During his one season at Tennessee, Jackson worked under Josh Heupel and Alex Golesh. More importantly, he worked alongside quarterbacks Hendon Hooker and Joe Milton. Players, Jackson said, with NFL skills and NFL talent, but also NFL minds. - Indianapolis Star News

  One storyline worth following in Tennessee's football offseason was expected to be where Tayven Jackson would fit in at quarterback with Joe Milton III returning and with the fanfare of five-star early enrollee Nico Iamaleava. That answer came quickly. The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder from Greenwood, Indiana, has entered the NCAA transfer portal and will not battle it out with Milton and Iamaleava in the months ahead under the guidance of coach Josh Heupel and new offensive coordinator Joey Halzle, who is entering his third season as quarterbacks coach of the Volunteers. Milton and Iamaleava are currently Tennessee's only quarterbacks on scholarship. - Chattanooga Times Free Press

  Tiawan Mullen announced Wednesday afternoon his intent to forgo one last year of eligibility and enter the NFL draft. Mullen's legacy needs little in the way of introduction. Only the second IU cornerback ever named an All-American, and the first to make first team, Mullen should be remembered among the best players at his position in Indiana football history. More than that, he will probably (and rightly) be remembered among the players who best embodied a period of tremendous success and serious football in Bloomington.

He was an All-American Bowl participant, like his older brother, Trayvon, who went to Clemson, but Tiawan spoke of blazing his own trail and did. He was the first out-of-state All-American Bowl selection to sign with IU at a position other than kicker, and he made good not just on the talent those credentials promised but also the symbolism of his decision. He was a standard bearer for IU football and IU athletics, a vocal supporter and in-person regular at other Indiana sporting events who was as beloved across the department as any athlete in recent memory. - Indianapolis Star/News

  Indiana quarterback Dexter Williams II was carted off the field and taken to a hospital on Saturday after suffering what appeared to be a serious injury to his right leg during the Hoosiers' game against Purdue. Williams was hurt with 46 seconds left in the first quarter when he tried to plant and throw. He immediately fell to the ground with nobody around him. Teammates gathered and some Purdue players took a knee as trainers placed an air cast around Williams' leg and strapped him onto a stretcher. Some of Williams' relatives also were on the field. Williams, a redshirt sophomore from Macon, Georgia, was making his second straight start. He tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during spring practice. - AP College Football

  Shaun Shivers ran for 115 yards and two touchdowns, including a 1-yarder in double overtime, to lift Indiana to a 39-31 come-from-behind victory over Michigan State on Saturday. Indiana's James Head Jr. blocked Ben Patton's 28-yard field goal in overtime and Michigan State's Michael Fletcher blocked Charles Campbell's 37-yard kick to send the game to double overtime. After Dexter Williams threw a 24-yard pass to AJ Barner to start the second overtime, Shivers ran for the game-winner. Williams threw a two-point conversion pass to Barner to give the Hoosiers an eight-point cushion. Michigan State failed to score as it could only drive to the 13-yard line. Michigan State (5-6, 3-5) appeared to be running away with the game after building a 17-point halftime advantage, but the Hoosiers rallied in the second half.

The Hoosiers (4-7, 2-6) closed within 24-14 at the start of the second half when Shivers broke free for a 79-yard touchdown run. The Spartans responded with Elijah Collins scoring his second touchdown of the game on a 31-yard burst through the line. Indiana's Jaylin Lucas, who had 168 kickoff return yards, returned the ensuing kickoff 88 yards for a touchdown. Following an interception of a pass by Payton Thorne, the Hoosiers' Campbell made a 40-yard field goal to cut it to 31-24. Josh Henderson tied the game at 31 with 12:59 left on a 1-yard run. Michigan State had a chance to win the game in regulation but Patton missed a 22-yard field goal as time expired. - Indiana/AP College Football

  11/01/22 - Cam CamperSr/2024, Indiana + More +

  Indiana's learned during its bye week its most productive offensive skill player will be out for the rest of the season, creating even more problems for an offense that has fizzed in five consecutive losses. Wide receiver Cam Camper, who is leading the Hoosiers with 46 receptions and 569 yards and has two touchdowns this season, tore his ACL in the Hoosiers' loss to Rutgers on Oct. 22, IU coach Tom Allen said at his news conference Monday. The first-year transfer from Trinity Valley Community College in Texas ranks sixth in the Big Ten and fifth in yards. "Obviously feel terrible for him," Allen said. "He's part of our team. He'll be in that long road to recovery. Our staff will do a great job of getting him back and having him ready for the fall." Camper was barely recruited out of Lancaster (Texas) High School because he was only about 5-9 as a senior.

He tried walking on at Football Championship Subdivision power Sam Houston State but went virtually unnoticed before deciding to go the junior college route. He grew to 6-2, 200 pounds and quickly became a go-to receiver at Trinity Valley and was the top-rated junior college wide receiver recruit in the 2022 class. He signed with the Hoosiers and immediately impressed the coaching staff when he arrived in the spring. He won a starting job in preseason camp and caught 11 passes for 156 yards against Illinois in the season opener, helping the Hoosiers rally to a 23-20 win. He also caught 10 passes for 126 yards in a loss to Cincinnati and was clearly IU quarterback Connor Bazelak's most trusted target. - Indianapolis Star/News
