Indiana Game Notes
Indiana broke several all-time offensive school records. The Hoosiers have now accumulated school-record totals with 5,410 total yards, 30 passing touchdowns, 54 total touchdowns and own a current scoring pace of 36.8 points per game, which would surpass the all-time mark of 33.0 set in 1988. Also, Indiana's 405 total points scored is just seven shy of the school-record 412 points in 2007.
Kofi Hughes finished with his third 100-yard receiving game of the season and the sixth of his career, which is tied for fifth in Indiana history. The junior collected a career-high nine receptions, covering 120 yards. His previous-best catch total of eight grabs also came at Ohio State, back in 2011.
Hughes ascended up Indiana's all-time record books with 1,902 receiving yards (eighth all-time) and 129 career catches (ninth).
Fellow wide receiver Cody Latimer made a climb in the all-time career totals as well. After a five-catch, 60-yard performance at Ohio State, Latimer's 1,932 career receiving yards and 128 receptions are the seventh and 10th highest, respectively, in school history. He can also be found in the single-season top 10 with 986 yards (5th) and 65 receptions (7th) thus far in 2013.
Junior WR Shane Wynn made his way into the IU record book as well following an eight-catch, 59-yard and a touchdown showing. He also added 71 kickoff returns yards, moving into fifth place all-time with 1,508 career kickoff return yards. His 14th career TD reception earned a share of seventh place while the eight scoring grabs in 2013 are tied for eighth in a single season.
Nate Sudfeld completed 25-of-41 passes for 224 yards and two scores. The sophomore owns 28 career TD tosses, good for seventh-most in school history. His 2013 season totals of 2,505 passing yards and 193 completions also rank in the top 10 all-time, slotted seventh and ninth, respectively.
Tre Roberson garnered 175 yards of total offense, passing for 96 and completing 7-of-12 attempts while picking up 79 yards rushing on 12 carries.
Running back D'Angelo Roberts gathered 62 yards from scrimmage, including a 25-yard touchdown reception. It marks Roberts first career TD catch and eighth score overall.
Running back Stephen Houston tallied 93 all-purpose yards (36 rushing, 8 receiving, 49 on kickoff returns). He moved into 10th place all-time with 3,126 career all-purpose yards.
Tight end Ted Bolser hauled in a pair of catches, increasing his career total to 114 (one shy of the IU tight end record of 115 by Bob Stephenson from 1978-81).
True freshman linebacker Marcus Oliver led the Hoosiers with seven tackles, four solo, both matching career-highs.
Redshirt freshman defensive tackle Ralphael Green recorded his first career sack and forced his first career fumble on the play in the opening quarter. Green made a career-high four solo tackles and two TFLs. True freshman defensive lineman Darius Latham made his first career recovery on the Green strip-sack.
Fifth-year senior safety Greg Heban picked off his third pass this season and the ninth of his career in the third quarter off of a deflection by sophomore cornerback Michael Hunter. Heban's nine INTs are tied for eighth all-time at IU.
Redshirt junior linebacker Jake Michalek was responsible for an OSU turnover as well, forcing and recovering a fourth quarter fumble.
Indiana has recovered 10 fumbles and picked off seven passes in 2013. The Hoosiers have converted those 17 turnovers into 77 points.
In total, the IU defense held Ohio State to seven points, 65.9 total yards and 4.9 first downs, fewer than their season averages entering the game.
Fifth-year senior Mitch Ewald missed his first kick of the season, a 42-yard field goal in the first quarter. It snapped his streak of 10 consecutive field goals made, dating back to last year, which shared the second-longest run in school history. He is 9-of-11 on the season and 48-of-48 on extra points. The 48 PATs are tied for the most in school history (Austin Starr, 2007).
Ewald is the Hoosiers all-time field goals, field goal percentage, extra points and total points (kickers) leader. The Naperville, Ill., native is 53-of-66 (80.3 percent) and 153-of-154 (99.4) for 312 points.
Junior running back D'Angelo Roberts earned his first start of the season and the third of his career.
Fifth-year senior tight end Ted Bolser (7th time this season), fifth-year senior safety Greg Heban (8th), junior wide receiver Cody Latimer (4th) and junior wide receiver Shane Wynn (2nd) served as game captains.
Indiana won the coin toss for the sixth time this year and deferred to the second half for the fifth time.
