Hoosiers’ defense outstanding in win over the Terps
There's a very good chance that Tom Allen's squad will move up in the polls after topping Maryland.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - The 12th-ranked Indiana Hoosiers put the clamps on the Maryland offense as IU forced three turnovers, chalked up three sacks, and produced a safety as Indiana defeated the Terrapins 27-11 on Saturday in Bloomington.

“Gotta play great defense to have a chance each week,” said IU head coach Tom Allen. " Really proud of our staff as they did a great job preparing and they had our guys in the right positions.”

As for the IU offense, the Hoosiers got a lift from running back Stevie Scott who had three rushing TD’s.

Indiana starting quarterback, Michael Penix Jr. had to leave the game in the third quarter with a lower right leg injury. Penix did not return and Allen said they would know more about the injury on Monday.

IU improved to 5-1 and will face Wisconsin in Madison next Saturday.
