Nov. 13, 2010
Indiana at Wisconsin
Redshirt freshman Nick Turner had a 67-yard run in the first quarter, the longest run of the year for the Hoosiers, bettering Darius Willis' 49-yard touchdown scamper against Towson. It was the first run of over 60 yards by a Hoosier since Willis ran for 64 yards against Purdue in 2009, and it is the longest run since Willis went 70 for a score against Northwestern on Oct. 24, 2009. Turner's run set up Indiana's first score of the game, a two-yard pass from Ben Chappell to Tandon Doss.
Turner finished with 103 yards on 11 carries, a career best. It was the third 100-yard game by a Hoosier this season on the ground.
Junior Darius Johnson finished the game with 1.5 sacks, moving his season total to a team-leading 4.5 . He finished the game with team-high 8 tackles and added a quarterback hurry. Sophomore Adam Replogle added a half sack as well.
Doss finished the game with 148 all-purpose yards, his 16th career trip over the 100-yard mark. With 3,294 career yards, he ranks ninth all-time at IU in all-purpose running and is just nine yards away from Courtney Roby in eighth.
Doss finished the game with 146 yards on kickoff returns. The total ties him with Lance Bennett for the ninth best in school history. His 758 kick return yards on the season are the third most in IU history. His 1,291 career yards on kickoff returns rank fifth in IU history.
In the fourth quarter, the Hoosiers scored on a 62-yard touchdown pass from Edward Wright-Baker to Duwyce Wilson. The score is IU's second longest of the season, behind Chappell's 65-yard TD to Damarlo Belcher against Arkansas State. The score is the first of Wright-Baker's career and is Wilson's longest of his career.
With four catches, Terrance Turner moved to 125 for his career, ranking eighth all-time at Indiana.
Mitch Ewald tied the game at 10 with a second-quarter field goal. The 48-yard kick is a career long, bettering the 46-yarder he made against Arkansas State. It is the longest kick by a Hoosier since Austin Starr hit a 49-yard boot against Purdue on November 17, 2007.
Ewald added a 33-yard field goal in the third quarter. The field goal was his 13th successful try of the season, tying him for the seventh-best single-season total in IU lore. It was Ewald's fourth game of the season with at least two field goals.
Justin Pagán started at left tackle, Aaron Price at left guard, Will Matte at center, Marc Damisch at right guard and James Brewer at right tackle. This is the fifth combination on the offensive line for IU in the last six games.
With his start at left tackle, Pagán has now started at left tackle (1), right guard (6) and right tackle (1) in 2010. He has also seen time at left guard this season. In his career, Pagán has three starts at left tackle, 13 at left guard, six at right guard and two at right tackle.
Junior safety Chris Adkins played in his first game of the season, returning from an ankle injury suffered in preseason camp. Junior tight end Max Dedmond returned from a knee injury suffered at Illinois to make his fourth start of the season. Sophomore kicker Nick Freeland returned from a hip injury.
Junior Damarlo Belcher and senior Mitchell Evans served as game captains, joining season captains Ben Chappell and Tyler Replogle for the opening coin toss. The Hoosiers won the toss for the sixth time, and received the opening kick, starting on offense for the seventh time this season.
