Throwback Thursday: Northwestern 24 Indiana 14

Throwback Thursday: Northwestern 24 Indiana 14

Written By Sammy Jacobs (@Hoosier_Huddle)

Indiana has not had great luck against Northwestern over the last 30 years. The 2016 edition of this series saw Indiana asleep at the wheel in the first half as they fell behind 24-3, before the defense woke up and gave the offense a chance. It was an ugly offensive game for the Hoosiers, who couldn't get anything going on the ground and forced Richard Lagow to throw the ball 59 times. The Wildcats gashed the Hoosier defense early, but was shut down late and got help from two unbelievable interceptions to seal the win. There was a lot of luck involved in this game, Northwestern defensed five passes, intercepting two while Indiana defensed 10 and had no takeaways to show for it. Winning on the road in the Big Ten is difficult, but IU made it harder on themselves than it should've been.
