Talented Roommates: Nick Westbrook and Luke Timian Lead the Way at WR

Written by Rylie Kyhn

Indiana’s veteran wide receivers Nick Westbrook and Luke Timian are two of the most respected leaders on the team and have been crucial pieces of the offense over the last three seasons.

After tonight’s loss, IU’s record drops to below .500 for the first time this year at 4-5 (1-5), and the defense is a large reason why.
