Matte, Replogle Named Captains for Third Straight Week
Sept. 14, 2012
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Seniors Will Matte and Adam Replogle will serve as captains for the third straight game when Indiana hosts Ball State on Saturday. The duo has combined to fill the game captain role a combined 24 times previously in their careers, 14 times for Replogle and 11 for Matte.
Matte, a fifth-year center from Wheaton, Ill., has been a mainstay on the Hoosier offensive line since his arrival in Bloomington. His efforts have not gone unnoticed by the national awards pundits, earning a spot on the Rimington Trophy Watch List this preseason. Matte has 35 career starts, including his first 32 games.
Replogle, a defensive tackle, has appeared in all 38 games in his career and has started the last 37. He is second on the team with 1.5 sacks and 11 tackles through two games. Replogle was elected a 2011 season captain.
Following its 45-6 victory at Massachusetts, the Indiana football team is 2-0 for the eighth time in the last nine seasons. The Hoosiers return home to face Ball State (1-1) at Memorial Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 15. Kickoff is set for 8:01 p.m. EDT and BTN will broadcast the game.
