News and notes
- IU will be without sophomore running back Tevin Coleman today. He suffered a sprained ankle after running for 215 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries against the Illini. The Hoosiers will rely on senior running back Stephen Houston and junior D'Angelo Roberts to carry the bulk of the load against the Badgers.
- Wisconsin comes in as a top-10 team in run defense, rushing offense and scoring defense. IU, meanwhile, has scored no fewer than 28 points this season and is in the top-15 in scoring offense and passing yards.
- Junior wide receiver Cody Latimer, who will likely play a huge role today, earned ESPN All American player of the week. The award, which is voted on by fans, came after a career day for the Ohio native. Latimer had 11 receptions for 189 yards and three touchdowns against Illinois, including two touchdown catches during the Hoosiers' third-quarter comeback.
