True freshman Antonio Banks ran for the first touchdown of his career, plunging one yard for the score. He finished the day with 18 yards on eight carries, both career highs.
Ten Indiana players had at least one catch in the game, led by Damarlo Belcher's four grabs, moving him into a tie for sixth on IU's career catches list with Keith Calvin, who had 121 catches between 1991-1994.
Quarterback Ben Chappell moved into fifth place all-time on IU's career passing list with 5,432 yards through the air in his career. He also moved into fourth in career attempts with 771.
Safety Lenyatta Kiles had the first fumble recovery of his career at the end of the third quarter, picking up the fumble that was forced by defensive end Fred Jones, the first of his career. It is the defense's second fumble recovery of the season.
Linebacker Jeff Thomas recorded the first interception of his career in the fourth quarter. His pick is the fourth for the Hoosiers this season and the sixth forced turnover on the year by the IU defense.
Indiana finished the game with eight tackles for loss and three sacks, both bests on the season.
In his first career start at outside linebacker, Leon Beckum recorded career highs of nine tackles, five solos, and three tackles for loss. Beckum added one sack, the second trip to the QB of his career. Defensive ends Darius Johnson and Terrance Thomas also added sacks in the game.

Cornerback Adrian Burks finished with six tackles, tying a career best.
Mitch Ewald kicked a career-long 36-yard field goal in the third quarter. He is 3-for-4 on the season. Ewald averaged 69.3 yards on three kickoffs.
