    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Coming off its bye week, the Indiana football team opens up its 114th year of Big Ten football against Penn State on Saturday, Oct. 5. Kickoff is set for noon EDT at Memorial Stadium and BTN will broadcast the game.

    IU has never defeated PSU. Penn State has won all 16 meetings, including six at Memorial Stadium. The Nittany Lions upended the Hoosiers, 16-10, in the last meeting in Bloomington (Oct. 1, 2011).

    Kevin Wilson is in his third season as head coach at Indiana. Wilson spent the 2002-10 seasons at Oklahoma, where he served as co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach from 2002-05 and as offensive coordinator and tight ends and fullbacks coach from 2006-10.

    Bill O'Brien was named Penn State's 15th head football coach on Jan. 6, 2012. O'Brien led the Nittany Lions to an 8-4 record (6-2 Big Ten) in 2012 and owns an overall mark of 11-5 (.688).

    • Saturday is Indiana's fifth straight home game to open the season. The Hoosiers will host eight contests overall for just the second time in program history (2008).

    • IU's staff and players will "go pink" in support of breast cancer awareness on Saturday.

    • Indiana coaches will wear Coach to Cure MD patches to raise awareness for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Fans are encouraged to donate online at or donate $5 by texting CURE to 90999.

    • The Hoosiers threw for 377 yards against Missouri, marking the fourth game this season and the sixth consecutive contest that they have had 300-plus passing yards - a school record.

    • A week after passing 1,000 career yards, Shane Wynn eclipsed 100 career receptions to become the 18th Hoosier to reach both milestones. Wynn now has 101 catches and 1,132 yards.

    • Wynn, Kofi Hughes, TE Ted Bolser and Cody Latimer also own over 1,000 career yards. Indiana has never had four 1,000-yard receivers on the same team.

    • For the second straight week, Latimer went over 100 yards (136) and posted a career-high eight receptions with one score. He became the first Hoosier since James Hardy in 2007 to claim back-to-back 100-yard games.

    • Safety Greg Heban recorded a pair of interceptions, his first two of the season and the seventh and eighth of his career. Heban was the last Hoosier to pick off a pair of passes in a single game, against Virginia in 2011.

    • Cornerback Tim Bennett ranks first nationally with 10 pass breakups. Bennett is also tied for 11th in the Big Ten with 7.0 tackles per game and shares fourth with his one fumble recovery.

    Mitch Ewald is Indiana's all-time kicking scoring leader with 263 points. Ewald is now third all-time overall in that category. He is first on IU's career list with 128 extra points and third in field goals (45).
