Throwback Thursday: Indiana 34 Florida International 13

Throwback Thursday: Indiana 34 Florida International 13

Once again we will be doing our Throwback Thursdays by taking a look at last year's games. Today we start with the Hoosiers' impressive opening week win 34-13 over Florida International. The game set the tone for a defensive turnaround and was a great road victory. However, there were some warning signs of issues that'd rear their head later in the season. IU wasted a number of opportunities in the red zone, Richard Lagow was not as accurate a passer as he had shown in fall camp, and Griffin Oakes' struggles with what should be automatic field goals continued. We have also included our new box score (thoughts please).
