Eyeing IU

  • Wilson: Positive first week for IU
    Coming off a ground-and-pound victory over in-state rival Indiana State, Indiana would like to continue playing football. But alas, the schedule says the Hoosiers are off this week.
  • Indiana overpowers Indiana State
    BLOOMINGTON — After just one quarter, it was clear that Indiana Hoosiers coach Kevin Wilson has more confidence than ever in the Indiana running game. And by halftime, Hoosiers quarterback Nate Sudfeld had made so many handoffs it was strange
  • Indiana State...then an off week
      Indiana’s 2014 season is just mere hours away from kicking off.

Hoosiers lead at halftime

BLOOMINGTON - We're halfway through at Memorial Stadium, and Indiana leads 25-24.

Indiana scored with five seconds remaining in the half when Cam Coffman found a wide open Cody Latimer on the left side of the end zone.

Because Ball State was called for an illegal substitution before the extra point attempt, Indiana elected to go for two, and of course, got it when Stephen Houston easily scored.

Although Indiana's final scoring drive went 78 yards in 15 plays, it took the Hoosiers just 4:03 to get there.

On the big scoreboard, they're showing highlights of Indiana's basketball win over Kentucky. I'm not sure which game will have more points - basketball or tonight's football game.

Some quick stats: Indiana has 353 total yards of offense, and Ball State has 186.

Coffman is 23 of 31 for 229 yards and two touchdowns, while Houston has 79 rushing yards in nine carries.

Ball State quarterback Keith Wenning is 10 of 17 for 84 yards and two touchdowns. It's the Ball State running game that has been slowed down, however. The Cardinals have rushed for 102 yards.

Ball State's 6-foot-5, 319-pound left guard Kitt O'Brien appeared to have rolled an ankle late in the first quarter and hasn't returned. O'Brien is one of the Cardinals' best offensive linemen and helps make the running game go.
