IU rolls past Indiana State

BLOOMINGTON — Indiana's Nate Sudfeld threw four touchdown passes, and Tevin Coleman rushed for 169 yards and two more TDs in Thursday night's record-breaking 73-35 victory over Indiana State.

The Hoosiers (1-0) scored 45 points in the first half, their highest total since the school started keeping records in 1949, and broke the Memorial Stadium scoring record by topping the 69 points Nebraska scored in 1978.

They made it look easy, too. The Hoosiers used only 3 minutes, 57 seconds to score six first-half touchdowns. Ted Bolser caught two TD passes to extend his own school record for tight ends, and Shane Wynn added three more with TD catches of 43 and 3 yards and a 58-yard punt return.

Shakir Bell ran 18 times for 113 yards for Indiana State (0-1) but left late in the first half with a separated right shoulder that could keep him out a couple of weeks.

Indiana delivered on its promise Thursday night. They were better than last year.

The Hoosiers showed how much they've improved during the offseason by dominating overmatched Indiana State in the record-breaking season-opener.

Tre Roberson and Nate Sudfeld each threw touchdown passes, while Shane Wynn and Ted Bolser each scored twice and the Hoosiers' usually maligned defense forced two turnovers and constantly harassed the Indiana State quarterbacks. And that was just in the first 30 minutes.

Indiana (1-0) produced its highest first-half point total (45) since the school started keeping track in 1949, broke the Memorial Stadium scoring record (69) by Nebraska in 1978 and would have broken the school's all-time scoring record (76) if the Hoosiers hadn't taken a knee four straight times inside the Indiana State 20 in the closing minutes.

While most analysts figured Indiana's explosive offense would score points by the dozens, few expected the Hoosiers to make it look this easy. They consumed only 3 minutes, 57 seconds on six first-half touchdowns.
