IU decided to play defense against itself last week, but the team still came out ahead despite their 94 penalty yards. They enjoyed a cozy 37-21 victory over the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. IU QB Michael Penix Jr. was slinging it as he passed for three TDs and 238 yards on 26 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown.
Special teams collected 13 points for IU. K Charles Campbell delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for Michigan as they fell 27-24 to the Michigan State Spartans last week. What made the loss an especially bitter pill for the Wolverines to swallow was that they had been favored by 21.5 points coming into the matchup. No one had a standout game offensively for Michigan, but they got scores from RB Blake Corum and RB Hassan Haskins.
Indiana’s win lifted them to 2-0 while Michigan’s defeat dropped them down to 1-1. The Hoosiers caused 5 turnovers against RU, so Michigan will need to take especially good care of the ball.
