    RECORD VS. OPPONENT
    Indiana holds an 8-6 edge in the series with the Hawkeyes and have won the last four contests in Bloomington. Also, four of the last six games have gone into overtime, with IU posting a 3-1 record in those contests.

    For the second straight season, the Nebraska Cornhuskers will pay a visit to Armstrong Stadium. But this will be their first appearance as a member of the Big Ten Conference. The Huskers won last year's meeting, 3-1.

    GETTING A GOOD START
    The first half has been very good to the Hoosiers so far this season as 11 of the 17 overall goals scored by IU have come in the first 45 minutes.

    In contrast, Indiana scored eight total first half goals during the entire 2010 season.

    AMONG THE BIG TEN'S BEST
    The Hoosiers rank fifth in the conference with 39 saves this season and lead in corner kicks drawn with 69.

    Orianica Velasquez is fifth in the conference with 4.56 shots per game and eighth in goals with five.

    HISTORY WITH IOWA
    Orianica Velasquez has scored a goal against Iowa in both the previous meetings. She scored the second goal in a 2-0 win at Armstrong Stadium in 2009 and then added another goal last year in the Hoosiers overtime win in Iowa City.

    Carly Samp also scored last year in Iowa City, knocking in the game-winner in overtime.

    ONE FOR THE BOOKS
    Carly Samp scored the lone goal against Xavier to give her 18 in her career and move into a tie for fifth place on the career goals scored list at Indiana. She also has 48 career points to gain tie for fifth on the career points list at Indiana.

    Junior Orianica Velasquez has also made a mark on the IU record books in two-plus seasons. With her goal against Marquette, she now has 17 goals in 43 career games for the Hoosiers. She is in seventh place on the career goals scored list at IU and is 8th on the career points scored list (40).

    And goalkeeper Lindsay Campbell has returned to form in her senior season and is moving up the goalkeeper charts as well. She has 15 career victories to tie for fifth on the career list at IU and her 0.91 GAA is the third-best all-time at IU. Additionally, Campbell has 12 career shutouts in goal to hold down third place on the career list.

    Turn to page five of the notes above for the complete lists.

    YOUNG AND OLD
    When the Hoosiers take the field to open the season, they will have solid mix of youth and veteran players. With nine true freshmen joining the fold and five redshirt freshmen from last year, that gives head coach Mick Lyon 14 newcomers to mix in with 15 returning players from the 2010 squad.
