Weird, disappointing, frustrating, plenty of other adjectives to describe this game. But even then, the outcome has left me speechless. The Hoosiers had a 25 point lead late in the third quarter and it looked they had the game in hand, but a string of mishaps allowed Rutgers to get back into the game, winning the game on a last second field goal, 55-52.  

All week this team has heard how important this particular game was by media and fans alike, but the team feel apart in the end.

Things started off great for the Hoosiers offense with Nate Sudfeld back in action after a near six quarter hiatus due to an ankle injury. But when the fourth quarter rolled around, the offense did a disappearing act, gaining just 25 yards in the the final 15 minutes. 

Much more to come on this game shortly.
