News and notes

  • A win today would secure IU coach Kevin Wilson the first winning nonconference record in his tenure in Bloomington. The Hoosiers went 1-3 in nonconference play in 2011 and 2-2 in 2012.
  • Missouri is the first SEC team IU has played since 2005, when Kentucky came to Bloomington. The Hoosiers beat the Wildcats 38-14 in that Sept. 17 matchup. IU is 4-0 against the Tigers all-time at Memorial Stadium and 6-2-2 overall against Missouri. This will be the only regular season game between Big Ten and SEC teams this year.
  • The Hoosiers will need similar defensive production against Missouri to what they had against Bowling Green in Week 3. IU didn't give up an offensive touchdown in the win. It was the first time the Hoosiers have done that since a 2008 game against Murray State. The Tigers offer a much tougher test offensively, and like IU run an up-tempo offense that cranks out nearly 80 plays per game. Missouri averages 48 points, 539 total yards and has converted 64.5 percent of its third down tries this season. The Hoosiers are similarly strong on offense, with 50 points and 571.3 yards per game.
