BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Tevin Coleman and Collin Rahrig earned honorable mention All-Big Ten recognition in 2013. Coleman rushed for 958 yards on 131 carries (7.3 average) with 12 touchdowns and finished with 1,275 all-purpose yards in nine games.
The junior averaged 106.4 rushing yards and 141.7 all-purpose yards per game. Coleman became the first Hoosier since Levron Williams (2001) to average over 100 rushing yards. He also collected the most yards for an IU back since Williams in 2001 and his all-purpose yardage per game marked the highest for an IU back since Williams that same season.
Coleman tied for second in the Big Ten (T-14th nationally) in yards per attempt, was third (22nd) in all-purpose yards per game, tied for third in total yards per play (7.3, T-26th), fourth (T-20th) in yards from scrimmage per game (127.9), fifth in rushing yards per game (22nd) and scoring per game (8.0), tied for fifth in rushing TDs and sixth in total scores.
Rahrig, a two-time IU offensive player of the week in 2013, started 10 games as a junior and has made 24 starts in his career. Indiana set single-season records with 6,102 total yards, 508.5 total yards per game, 461 points, 38.4 points per game, 36 passing touchdowns, 62 total touchdowns and 300 first downs one year ago.
The team averaged over 300 passing yards and 200 rushing yards in the same season for the first time in school history and the offensive line surrendered just one sack every 26.1 pass attempts, which ranked third in the Big Ten. Indiana was one of just 10 teams in nation to rank in the top 30 in total, passing, scoring and rushing offense.
