IU Football Hopes To Build Off Of Last Week’s Win

Indiana is playing Saturday to be a contender for the Big Ten title game if they beat the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Indiana plays at home on Saturday coming off of their first win Big Ten victory over Illinois.  Indiana hopes to build off of that win in order to beat the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Indiana scored more points last week than they had all last season, and they won their first Big Ten game since November of 2010. The Hawkeyes will pose a threat for the Hoosier defense, their quarterback Senior James Vandenberg surpassed 5,000 passing yard last week in their loss against Northwestern.

He is only the seventh Hawkeye in history to accomplish that feat.

The major question mark for the Hoosier is who will start at the quarterback position Saturday. After a tough start last week Junior Cameron Kaufman was replaced by True Freshman Nate Sudfeld, who led the Indiana to its first win in 5 games.

Coach Wilson said at his weekly press conference Tuesday that he was still not sure who would get the start.

“They’re kinda splitting reps up, and pretty solid in practice, but we need to play a lot better than we played Saturday, so we’ll see as the week goes.  I would have said in the earlier games Nate would have been out there and wasn’t.”

A win this Saturday could make the Hoosiers a contender for the Leaders Division, putting them one game behind Wisconsin, who just lost their quarterback for the season.

A win over Wisconsin and Iowa could put them in the Big Ten title game.
