    GREEN-ELLIS AMONG ELITE COMPANY
    True freshman BenJarvus Green-Ellis rushed for 203 yards on 42 carries last weekend at Penn State. He became just third true freshman in Indiana history to gain 200+ yards in a game.
    Here is a look at the top rushing marks by true freshmen at IU:
    245 Alex Smith vs. Purdue 1994
    232 Alex Smith vs. Iowa 1994
    221 Alex Smith vs. Kentucky 1994
    207 A. Thompson vs. Wisconsin 1986
    203 Green-Ellis vs. PSU 2003
    The 203 yards was the most by an Indiana running back since Levron Williams gained 251 yards against Michigan State in 2001.

    SCORING ON THE OPENING DRIVE
    Indiana has scored on its opening drive in each of the last two games, the first two times this season that the Hoosiers have scored on their first drive. The 80-yard drive against Penn State was Indiana's longest this season.

    REBUILDING A PROGRAM
    It is clear which players have been slotted to redshirt in their first collegiate season at IU. Removing those 30 players from the roster, along with the seven players that are out for the season leaves Indiana with 71 players on the active roster. Below is a breakdown of those players.

    IU has a total of 69 scholarship players on its entire roster (including players expected to redshirt and injured players). Next year will be the first time under Gerry DiNardo that the Hoosiers have the maximum number of scholarship players (85).

    NOT AN EASY ROAD
    Head Coach Gerry DiNardo is trying to rebuild Indiana Football after the program suffered seven straight non-winning seasons. Here is a look at the number of consecutive non-winning seasons IU had prior to each coach coming to Bloomington.

    RUNNING PAST 2002 NUMBERS
    Indiana has gained 1,667 yards on the ground this season, already 269 yards more than all of last season. Last season IU gained 1,398 yards for an average of 116.5 yards per game. This year the Hoosiers are averagin 151.5 yards per game.

    100-YARD RUSHING GAMES
    The Hoosiers have had a back rush for 100+ yards five times this season, including a 203-yard performance last weekend by freshman BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Against Northwestern both Green-Ellis and Brian Lewis tallied 100+ yards. Green-Ellis picked up his first 100-yard game against Indiana State. Against Kentucky, Lewis returned from an injury that kept him out against Indiana State to rush for 116 yards.

    YOUNG BACKS MAKE HISTORY
    With BenJarvus Green-Ellis' 107 rushing yards against Indiana State this season and Chris Taylor's 102 rushing yards against Northwestern last season, the Hoosiers made school history. Never before had IU seen back-to-back seasons with a true freshman rushing for 100+ yards in a game.

    ALL-TIME 100-YARD TRUE FROSH
    BenJarvus Green-Ellis became the seventh true freshman in IU history to rush for 100 yards in a game. He joins a list that includes the following:
    Chris Taylor (2002)
    De'Wayne Hogan (1997)
    Alex Smith (1994)
    Anthony Thompson (1986)
    Mike Harkrader (1976)
    Courtney Snyder (1973)

    TOP RUSHING MARK VS WILDCATS
    Indiana gained 327 yards on the ground against Northwestern, the most under Head Coach Gerry DiNardo. That total was the highest by an Indiana team since November 10, 2001, when IU had 489 yards at Michigan State. The performance against Northwestern was just the fourth 300+ game by an IU team in the last 40 games.

    FRESHMEN NUMBERS NOT SEEN SINCE `94
    True freshman BenJarvus Green-Ellis leads the Hoosiers with seven touchdowns. It is the most touchdowns by a true freshman since Alex Smith had 10 touchdowns in 1994. The last time a true freshman led the Hoosiers in touchdowns was in 1997 (De'Wayne Hogan-4). Green-Ellis also leads the team in rushing with 783 yards, the most by a true freshman since 1994 when Smith went for 1,475 yards. The last time a true freshman led the team in rushing came in 1997 when Hogan gained 506 yards.

    BIG PLAYS IN 2003
    Indiana has had 28 plays of 20+ yards this season. Last year, the Hoosiers had 51 plays for 20+ yards.

    In seven games this season, Indiana's leading tackler was either a freshman or a sophomore. The team's leading tackler, Kyle Killion, is just a sophomore with 18 career games played while true freshman Will Meyers ranks third on the team in stops. True freshman Jake Powers led the Hoosiers with 13 tackles (11 solo) against Ohio State. Fellow true freshman Will Meyers added seven solo stops, while true freshman Cedric Henry had seven tackles, an interception and a forced fumble. Against Minnesota, four of the team's top six tacklers were freshmen while against Illinois two of the top three were freshmen. Against Penn State Meyers led the way with eight tackles.

    CLEMONS POSTING CAREER-BEST SACK NUMBERS
    Junior Jodie Clemons leads the team with five sacks. He needs just three more to crack the IU top five single season sack list. He entered the season with just three career sacks. Last year's team leader Kris Dielman had a total of five sacks for the season.

    LOVECCHIO ONE OF JUST FOUR
    Having taken Notre Dame to the 2001 Fiesta Bowl, Matt LoVecchio is one of only four active quarterbacks to have started in a BCS bowl game.
    • Brock Berlin-Miami
    (2000 Orange Bowl at Florida)
    • Craig Krenzel-Ohio State

    NEW NUMBERS FOR LOVECCHIO
    Quarterback Matt LoVecchio has already eclipsed his single-season career high in passing yards. He has already set his single-game career high in passing four times this season, including against Kentucky. LoVecchio threw for 266 yards against the Wildcats and has had three 200-yard games and one 199-yard performance this season. While at Notre Dame, LoVecchio's career-best passing mark was 183.

    LOOKING FOR 100-YARD RECEIVER
    Indiana has yet to have a player gain 100+ receiving yards this season. Last year it happened six times.

    PASSING NUMBERS
    Last season Indiana set a school record with 3,020 passing yards. The Hoosiers averaged 235 passing yards per game in 2002. The Hoosiers have gained 1,883 yards through the air this year, an average of 171.2 yards per game. It should be noted, however, IU has cut down their interceptions from 21 to eight.

    ROBY AMONG TOP TEN
    Courtney Roby cracked Indiana's all-time top ten receiving yardage list against Northwestern. He has 1,702 career yards and ranks 5th on the list.

    JOHNSON CLOSING IN ON TOP TEN
    Glenn Johnson needs just 124 more receiving yards to crack Indiana's all-time top ten receiving yardage list. He has 1,451 career yards.

    BEATTIE PUNTING WELL
    Redshirt freshman Tyson Beattie has handled the punting duties well in his first season after coming to Bloomington from Australia. He is averaging 40.2 yards per punt this season and nine of his kicks have been at or inside the 10 yard line. The 40.2 average would be the top mark by a Hoosier punter since 1999 if Beattie can keep up his current pace.

    Penn State 42.8 yards per punt (inside the 5 once)
    Illinois 38.8 yards per punt
    Minnesota 39.8 yards per punt (including an 80-yarder)
