    • Coleman's 7.5 average per carry is the fifth-highest among the 18 2,000-yard rushers.

    Tevin Coleman - One Of The Nation's Best
    One of three finalists for the Doak Walker Award and a first team All-Big Ten selection, Tevin Coleman is second nationally in rushing yards (2,036), rushing yards per game (169.7), all-purpose yards per game (181.4) and yards from scrimmage per game (181.4), third in all-purpose yards (2,177) and yards from scrimmage (2,177), fifth in rushing yards per carry (7.54), tied for 15th in rushing touchdowns (15) and tied for 18th in total touchdowns (15) this season.

    • Coleman set Indiana's single-season rushing record with his 228-yard performance, to go along with a career-long 90-, 52- and 2-yard TDs at No. 7 Ohio State, breaking Vaughn Dunbar's 1991 mark of 1,805.

    • Coleman's four 200-yard games in 2014, four career 200-yard games in Big Ten play, three 200-yard games in Big Ten play in 2014 and five career 200-yard games each set a new program record.
