The Indiana defense made a statement today in the Hoosiers (2-1) 42-10 drubbing of the Bowling Green Falcons (2-1) this afternoon at The Rock. After getting lit up by Navy’s option offense, the Indiana defense held the Falcon offense to just three points, pitching a shutout over the final 30 minutes and forced two turnovers. The offense, after a slow start, put up 601 total yards including 335 yards passing from sophomore Nate Sudfeld. Indiana also got a big effort from running backs Tevin Coleman and Stephen Houston as they combined for 284 yards on the ground. Bowling Green’s lone touchdown came on a blocked punt that was returned 56 yards by Paul Senn. Bowling Green took a 10-7 lead on a Tyler Tate field goal, but the Hoosiers went on the score the next 35 points in route to the victory.
