    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The 2009 campaign marked the Indiana football program's 50th season in Memorial Stadium. IUHoosiers.com will count down the top 12 games in Memorial Stadium history this season.

    A panel consisting of former Hoosier player and Director of Operations Harold Mauro, former player and current Athletic Director for Football Operations Mark Deal, former IU radio analyst Max Skirvin, current Voice of the Hoosiers Don Fischer, current IU pre-game, post-game and halftime voice Joe Smith, Herald-Times reporter Lynn Houser, long-time Hoosier Sports Information Director and current IU Assistant Athletic Director Kit Klingelhoffer and long-time Herald-Times sports editor Bob Hammel deliberated and came up with a list of the top all-time games.

    Fans then emailed their votes from this list, resulting in the top 12 games in Memorial Stadium history. Here is No. 6:


    Indiana 24 LSU 21
    September 17, 1977

    The Hoosiers did what no other IU team in the last 21 years had done - come from more than one touchdown behind in the last quarter to win. Ric Enis had the winning score, an 11-yard touchdown gallop with 2:33 left in the game.

    Two long fourth-quarter drives, one of 88 yards, the final of 70 yards, spelled the difference, and the defense held a late LSU surge at midfield to win it. The Hoosiers' 476 yards in total offense was the best since 1969 and the 10th best ever.

    It was paced by Scott Arnett's 11 of 18 passing for 148 yards, Keith Calvin's seven receptions for 141 yards, and the tailback running of Darrick Burnett (132) and Ric Enis (64), who combined for 196 yards and two touchdowns. The LSU attack was paced by tailback Charles Alexander, who rushed for 117 yards in 24 carries. The game is the only win in program history over the Bayou Bengals.
