    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - A soggy morning turned to a fine day for Indiana football's first scrimmage of the spring. The team ran approximately 100 plays with some special teams and 7-on-7 periods mixed in.

    The Hoosier offense started out hot, driving right down the field for a touchdown. Ben Chappell completed a 39-yard pass to Duwyce Wilson for the score. Chappell finished the day with 205 yards on 11-of-14 passing, including the touchdown. Chappell hit Tandon Doss for 38 yards and then connected with Jamonne Chester for 25.

    Chappell showed a connection with Wilson and Doss. Wilson finished the day three catches for 74 yards and touchdown, and Doss pulled in seven balls for 124 yards.

    Other big plays included Dusty Kiel taking off for a 14 yard-gain on the ground. Kiel later hit Doss for a 21-yard pickup. Antonio Banks ran in an 11-yard score late in the scrimmage. Tyler Adetona, who had 4 receptions for 55 yards, caught a Teddy Schell pass for a 33-yard gain.

    The Hoosier defense showed they could make plays as well. Linebacker Leon Beckum led the team with seven tackles. Jeff Thomas had four tackles and broke up a pass.

    Kevin Bush proved disruptive from the drop end position, taking three tackles and a sack from the 3-4 set. Donnell Jones made a difference out of the defensive backfield as well, recording three stops.



    The Hoosiers got good penetration from the defensive line. Javon Cornley forced an incompletion with a quarterback hurry, and Fred Jones and Darius Johnson each recorded a sack.

    In 7-on-7 play, Dre Muhammad reeled in two touchdown passes from Chappell. Later, Jack Denton pulled down an interception.

    Mitch Ewald was 3-of-3, connecting on field goals from 35, 37 and 29 yards out. Nick Freeland was 5-of-6, hitting from 37, 34, 34, 20, 28 and 23. Mick Mentzer broke through to block Freeland's only miss.
