Indiana Game Notes vs. Illinois
Sept. 22, 2007
James Hardy's second-quarter TD grab gave him scores in each of the last five IU games. He has recorded a reception in each of his 24 career games.
Tracy Porter's interception in the first quarter was the 12th of his career, moving him into sole possession of second place on Indiana's all-time list. By adding a pick in the third quarter, he now has three multi-interception games in his four years with the Hoosiers.
Andrew Means set career highs with seven catches and 83 receiving yards in the game. The sophomore's five-yard run in the first quarter was the first rush of the sophomore's career.
Kellen Lewis' 26 completions matched a career-high, set in last year's season finale at Purdue. His 51 attempts were the most of the sophomore's career and the most since Blake Powers threw the ball 57 times against Iowa in 2005. Lewis posted multiple touchdown passes for the fourth time in four games this season.
Lewis moved into the all-time top 10 in completions (ninth, 267), attempts (10th, 512) and passing yards (10th, 3,127). He gained sole possession of sixth place in passing TDs (25) and moved up to ninth in total offense (3,920).
James Bailey's 30-yard touchdown catch was the junior's first since the Oct. 15, 2005, against Iowa. It was the fourth TD grab of his career.
Will Patterson's fourth-quarter forced fumble was the second of his career. He also forced a fumble last season against Michigan State. Patterson's two tackles for loss marked a career high
Redshirt freshman Deonte Mack had a career-best three tackles in the contest. Playing in his third game for IU, Mack entered the contest with one tackle in his career.
