Indiana Game Notes
Tandon Doss caught TDs of 11 and 46 yards in the first half for his first career two-score game. He now has four scores on the year and five in his career. He is the first Hoosier receiver with two TD grabs in a game since James Hardy had two scores at Northwestern on Oct. 10, 2007. The 46-yarder was the longest TD grab of the sophomore's career.
Doss filled in for the injured Ray Fisher on kickoff and punt returns in the game and had career-long returns in both. His 33-yard KR in the second quarter and 21-yard PR in the third were both bests for the sophomore. He added 92 receiving yards for a career-best 207 all-purpose yards. It is the seventh time this season and the sixth time in the last seven games that he has surpassed 100 APY. It is the first time in his career that Doss has eclipsed 200 APY.
Doss finished with six receptions for 92 yards, and moved into 3rd place on the Hoosiers' single-season receptions list with 65. He now has 843 receiving yards on the year to move into seventh place on that list as well.
Chappell's three touchdown passes give him 13 on the season and marked his fifth multi-TD game this season. He had three TD tosses one other time this year, against Illinois on Oct. 17.
The junior went 25-for-35 for 323 yards in the contest. He has 213 completions (third), 338 attempts (eighth) and 2377 yards (fifth) to go along with his 13 TDs (T-sixth). He is in the Hoosiers' top 10 on the single-season list in every category. He also moved into 10th place on the school's career passing yards list, as his 3,392 yards are 10th in IU history.
His 323 yards marked his third 300-yard game of the season and the third of his career. He joins Kellen Lewis (four) and Steve Bradley (three) as the only QBs in school history to throw for 300 yards three times in their career. He now has six 200-yard games on the year and seven in his career.
Trea Burgess scored his third touchdown of the season at the 4:01 mark in the fourth quarter. It was his first trip into the end zone since he scored at Akron on Sept. 19.
Terrance Turner had a career day for the Hoosiers, as the redshirt junior grabbed his first career touchdown in the fourth quarter. Turner finished with career highs in receptions (six) and yards (68).
The Hoosiers went for it on fourth down three times in the game, converting on each attempt. The third attempt resulted in a Trea Burgess 2-yard touchdown plunge.
IU had three drives of 10 plays after halftime, giving them 19 drives of 10 plays or more this season.
With Wisconsin's muffed punt in the first quarter, the Hoosiers have now recorded a takeaway in four straight weeks and in nine of the 10 games this year. Collin Taylor recovered the fumble for his first career fumble recovery. Taylor has been a part of four turnovers in the last two games, as he had two interceptions and a forced fumble against Iowa.
The 386 yards of offense accrued by IU in the game marked the third most given up by the Badgers this year and the fourth-highest total for the Hoosiers on the season.
The Hoosiers were penalized just four times on the day for a season-low 27 yards.
Adam Replogle made his first career appearance on the offensive side of the ball, lining up at fullback three times late in the game. He served as lead blocker for two Trea Burgess carries, including the junior's two-yard TD run in the fourth quarter.
Bryan Payton made the most of his opportunities, as the fifth-year senior ran for 48 yards on eight carries after Willis suffered an injury.
Nick Freeland hit all four of his extra-point attempts in the game, improving to 29-for-29 on the season. He is just two PATs away from entering this school's top 10 in a single season.
Indiana scored first for the eighth time in 10 games this season. It marked the first time that the Hoosiers have opened the scoring when their opponents started with the ball.
Indiana won the opening toss for the fifth time this season and the fourth time at home. The Hoosiers elected to defer for just the second time this year, giving the Badgers the ball to start the game.
Indiana's game captains were seniors Rodger Saffold, Matt Mayberry and Collin Taylor as well as junior Ben Chappell. Mayberry has been a captain five times, while Saffold and Chappell have been captain four times each. Taylor was captain for the first time. Mayberry is a captain for the third straight week, while it is the second straight captaincy for Saffold.
