Indiana Game Notes
Indiana set a new three-game record with 150 points. The previous mark of 141 was set in 1917. It is the eighth time in program history IU has scored 35-plus points in a three-game stretch (last time 2010).
This marks the fourth time that Indiana has scored over 40 in head coach Kevin Wilson's tenure. This is the third time over 600 yards of total offense and the fifth over 550.
Indiana ended the game scoring 35 unanswered.
This marks the first time since 2008 against Murray State that Indiana has not allowed its opponent to score an offensive touchdown. Bowling Green came into the game averaging 37.5 points.
The Hoosiers threw for 335 yards in the game, marking the third game this season and fifth consecutive game dating back to last year that IU has had 300-or-more passing yards in a game.
Mitch Ewald's six extra points tied him with Scott Bonnell as IU's all-time kicking scoring leader with 261. Ewald is now tied for third all-time in that category.
Nate Sudfeld put up his second consecutive 300-yard passing game, finishing with 335 yards on 17-of-26 passing with two touchdowns. He added a 1-yard TD run to go along with his 33- and 8-yard scoring strikes.
Indiana posted 266 rushing yards in the game, the fifth time in the Wilson Era that the Hoosiers have recorded 250-or-more rushing yards in a game.
This marks the first time since October 29, 2011 (Northwestern) that Indiana had two 100-yard rushers (Stephen Houston - 155, Tevin Coleman - 129). The last time two Hoosier running backs rushed for 100 yards in the same game came back in 2003, when BenJarvus Green-Ellis (136) and Brian Lewis (128) accomplished the feat against Northwestern on Oct. 11.
Houston rushed for 155 yards, just shy of his career-high of 158, on 13 attempts (11.9 average). This was his sixth career 100-yard game.
Coleman kicked off the scoring with a 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. He notched his second two-TD rushing game in three weeks with a career-long 43-yard score to put the Hoosiers up 14-10 in the second.
The sophomore broke the 100-yard mark for the second time in three weeks, posting 129 yards on 19 attempts (6.8 average). Coleman has five rushing scores this season, six in his career and seven overall (kick return).
Cody Latimer set a career-high with 137 yards on six receptions to go along with a 33-yard touchdown, his first of the season and the ninth of his career. The junior went over the 100-yard mark for the first time this season and the third time in his career.
Shane Wynn became the 38th receiver in Indiana history to reach the 1,000-yard mark and is the fourth current Hoosier (Kofi Hughes, Ted Bolser, Cody Latimer). IU has never had four 1,000-yard receivers on the same team.
The junior ended the game with three receptions for 81 yards and now has 1,042 in his career.
Senior Kofi Hughes finished the day with 34 yards on four receptions. His 8-yard score was his third of the season and the ninth of his career.
David Cooper had his third career game with 10 tackles, a career-high, including six solo.
Greg Heban led the Hoosiers defense with 12 tackles, a career-high-tying nine solo, marking his fourth career game with 10-plus tackles.
Sophomore defensive end Nick Mangieri recorded his first career interception when he made a diving stab in the third quarter. Mangieri added a sack to push his season total to 2.5 and finished the game with four tackles (one for a loss).
Junior cornerback Tim Bennett carded seven stops and three pass breakups. He also had three PBUs in the 2013 season opener vs. Indiana State and now has seven this year.
Junior defensive lineman Bobby Richardson added six tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss and one pass breakup.
Indiana's first TD drive took three plays and covered 51 yards in 39 seconds. It marked IU's seventh TD drive in three-or-fewer plays and sixth in under 60 seconds this season.
The Hoosiers have 11 scoring drives under 90 seconds (10 touchdowns and one field goal).
Indiana received the ball first for the second time this season. Bowling Green won the coin toss.
Junior Mike Replogle played both defensive end and fullback. The last Hoosier to play on both sides of the ball in a game was his brother, Adam, at Penn State on Nov. 14, 2009.
