  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 CamperJr/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

  Indiana backup quarterback Jack Tuttle announced Monday that he will transfer at the end of this season. Coach Tom Allen confirmed the news at the start of his weekly news conference, explaining the two spoke last week and that Tuttle, a team captain, would remain No. 2 on the depth chart. The 23-year-old Tuttle is in his sixth college season and has one year of eligibility remaining. "We had an open, honest talk about his time here and he has a desire to want to play his final year. I appreciate that," Allen said. "He's been a great leader for us, have a lot of love and respect for Jack. He's earned two degrees here. It's a unique situation, for sure, but I think it (staying this season) speaks to his character and what we’re all about here." The California prep star made four starts with the Hoosiers after transferring from Utah in 2019. He replaced the injured Michael Penix in the sixth game of the eight-game 2020 season and closed out that year as the starter, then started two more games - losses to No. 10 Michigan State and No. 5 Ohio State - last season. Tuttle has completed 95 of 170 passes for 819 yards with four touchdowns and six interceptions during his career with the Hoosiers. Indiana (3-4, 1-3 Big Ten) has lost four in a row. The announcement comes one week after Allen fired offensive line coach and run game coordinator Darren Hiller. - AP College Football

  Indiana coach Tom Allen made a rare midseason coaching change Sunday when he fired offensive line coach and run-game coordinator Darren Hiller. The move comes one day after the Hoosiers (3-3, 1-2 Big Ten) rushed for 29 yards and allowed seven sacks in a 31-10 loss to No. 4 Michigan. Hiller was in his sixth season with Indiana and had survived a staff shakeup following last season's dismal 2-10 mark. Indiana opened this season with three straight come-from-behind wins but has now lost three in a row, largely because of an inconsistent offense and a leaky offensive line that has allowed a Big Ten-worst 19 sacks.

Former Indiana offensive lineman Rod Carey takes over both jobs for the rest of this season. He was hired in the offseason as a quality control coach after spending the previous nine seasons as a head coach, compiling a 64-50 record while earning seven bowl bids. At Northern Illinois, Carey led the Huskies to four Mid-American Conference division titles, two league championships and the 2013 Orange Bowl. He played for Indiana's winningest all-time coach, the late Bill Mallory, from 1990-93. - AP College Football

  Connor Bazelak threw a touchdown pass and completed a 2-point conversion pass with 47 seconds left Saturday to force overtime and Charles Campbell made a 51-yard field goal to give the Hoosiers a 33-30 victory over Western Kentucky on Saturday. The unbeaten Hoosiers have rallied in the second half of all three victories this season and have now surpassed last season's win total. But it took everything Indiana could muster late - a 17-point fourth quarter, a late goal-line stand, Western Kentucky's missed 44-yard field goal as time expired in regulation, and a blocked 39-yard field-goal attempt in overtime before Campbell won it.

Western Kentucky (2-1) has lost all five meetings with Indiana - the last three by a combined total of eight points - and is 0-9 against Big Ten foes since joining the FBS in 2007. And for most of the game, it looked like those skids would end. Austin Reed threw two touchdown passes and ran for another Saturday to give the Hilltoppers a 24-13 lead after three quarters. They just failed to close it out. It was a wacky game even before the late flurry. Indiana's starting center, Zach Carpenter, didn't play after getting hurt in pregame warmups and Western Kentucky nearly lost starting safety Kaleb Oliver on a targeting call on Indiana's fifth play. The call was overturned on a replay review. Then at the end of the first half, three players ran into the goal post chasing an overthrown ball by Bazelak. - Indiana/AP College Football

  Indiana's offensive line, which struggled for long stretches of Friday's 23-20 season-opening win against Illinois, will now have to replace one of its steadiest veterans for the rest of the season. Matthew Bedford, a mainstay since his freshman season in 2019 who started at right tackle Friday, tore his ACL in the first half against Illinois and will be out for the year. Three-plus seasons in Bloomington, Bedford had appeared in 29 games, 28 of them starts. He was a stalwart in 2019 and 2020, before being asked to move around more last season in an effort to strengthen a beleaguered line. - Indianapolis Star

  Connor Bazelak took Indiana on a 75-yard scoring march on its final series and Shaun Shivers capped it by scoring on a 1-yard run with 23 seconds left to give the Hoosiers a 23-20 victory over Illinois on Friday night. Indiana's season-opening victory snapped an eight-game losing streak and a nine-game skid in Big Ten play. Bazelak finished 28-of-52 passing for 330 yards and one TD in his Hoosiers debut. It was a frustrating finish for the Illini, who allowed only 70 yards in the second half before the final series. Chase Brown ran for 199 yards and Tommy DeVito threw two touchdown passes for Illinois (1-1, 0-1). Brown became the first Illinois player to open a season with consecutive 100-yard games since 1944. And yet it still wasn't enough to prevail in this slugfest.

Brown lost one of two fumbles, multiple players were injured and a series of replay reviews that brought the second-half to a stalemate that featured just one score - DeVito's go-ahead 16-yard TD pass to Brian Hightower early in the third quarter - until the final 2 1/2 minutes. While Indiana struggled to stop the run, Bazelak carved up the Illinois secondary in the first half and again on the final drive. His first completion as a Hoosier went for 40 yards - more than Illinois yielded in last weekend's entire game. Bazelak, the former Missouri starter, added three more completions of 24 or more yards during the first two quarters including a 52-yard TD pass to D.J. Matthews Jr. that helped Indiana take a 16-10 halftime lead. - Indiana/AP College Football

  Emery Simmons is now getting ready for his first season with the Hoosiers. His journey to Bloomington has now become somewhat circular. The University of North Carolina transfer is an intriguing part of Indiana's receiving corps not only because of his tangibles but also his intangibles. "That dude is freaking tough," quarterback Jack Tuttle said about what stood out to him about Simmons. "Like, he's mentally tough, physically tough, just a grinder, really just a grinder. He'll be in the film room for hours - it's unreal."

Simmons was a standout at South View, where he played his junior and senior seasons. In those final two high school seasons, he tallied 122 receptions for 2,333 yards and 30 touchdowns. As a senior, he made a catch worth mentioning. The South View quarterback rolled right before launching the football across his body. Simmons, who had two defenders right on him, leaped back and hauled it in. "I think from there, I mean it was just really the legend is alive," Brewington said. "I mean, it was just unbelievable. I mean, almost every game, he did some type of circus catch." - Indianapolis Star/News

  He's the highest ranked recruit in program history, and Dasan McCullough might be ready to make a splash in year one. At the very least, McCullough made an impression on the Big Ten Network crew that was in Bloomington on Friday for the team's first scrimmage. The son of former running backs coach Deland McCullough, it wasn't clear where on the field Indiana would try to plug in the Bloomington High School South product. He was originally thought of as a safety, but after he grew to 6-foot-5 and 230 pounds, McCullough could be either a linebacker or a stand-up defensive end in college. Based on what the BTN crew saw on Friday, it sounds like McCullough could be training at least in part for the latter, and a position the IU program calls the "bull" in head coach Tom Allen's 4-2-5 scheme. "There was a player on the defensive line, McCullough, that really caught our eye," BTN's Joshua Perry said.

Indiana struggled to get pressure on the quarterback last year, and McCullough gave the impression on Friday that he may be someone who can change that in 2022. BTN's Howard Griffith broke into the smile of someone who had just witnessed a special player on the football field. "What jumps out immediately is the body type. He's long, can really rush the passer," Griffith said of McCullough. "He's gonna spend some more time in the weight room because he's young. But I think he's going to develop, and when you talk about him being an elite pass rusher, I think he has that skill set in him. He's gonna be one of those guys that they might not have thought was going to be a huge contributor on the defensive line, but it looks like he's going to be a big part of the packages that they run." - The Daily Hoosier
