Throw Back Thursday: Week 1 2014 Indiana State

Throw Back Thursday: Week 1 2014 Indiana State

Welcome to the 2015 edition of our Throw Back Thursdays. During the next 12 weeks we will take a look back at every Hoosier game in 2014 with a short hindsight synopsis and our original game wrap up and reaction. So without further ado here is the first installment of our 2015 TBT series. 
The Hoosiers started the 2014 with a 28-10 win over Indiana State, which raised more questions than answers.

All sports are predicated on statistics and numbers, especially football. The Indiana Hoosiers put up some very impressive numbers in their 28-10 victory over the Indiana State Sycamores. Let’s dive into some of those numbers and see what they mean.

455- The number of rushing yards the Hoosiers gained in the game. This came on 69 carries. 455 yards are a new Memorial Stadium record.

566- The total amount of yards gained by the Hoosiers offense. It was the eighth time under Kevin Wilson that the Hoosiers surpassed the 500-yard threshold.

11- True freshman made their debut for the Hoosiers. Kevin Wilson has never been afraid to play the young guys.

30- Rushing yards given up by a stout Hoosier defense. This marks the lowest rushing total from an opponent since the Hoosiers defeated Western Michigan in 2009.

170- Total yards given up by the Hoosiers, the lowest since a win over Murray State in 2008.
