And they dominated this game in every possible facet.
Wynn caught a 43-yard TD pass from Roberson and scored on a 58-yard punt return, Indiana's first since Tracy Porter seven years ago. He added a 3-yard TD catch in the third quarter, his only other catch of the night.
Bolser extended his school record for TD receptions by a tight end with scoring catches of 12 and 9 yards.
Tevin Coleman broke free for a 34-yard TD run on fourth-and-1, and finished with 14 carries, 169 yards and two scores.
But what everyone came to see was whether the Hoosiers revamped defense was any better than the one that yielded 35 points per game a year ago.
They were. After allowing Indiana State to tie the score at 7 in the first quarter, Indiana stopped the Sycamores nine straight times — enough to give ticket-holders at the game a discount at a local watering hole. Half of the 28 points weren't even the fault of the defense. Indiana State scored on a fumble return just before the half ended and an interception return just after it.
Shakir Bell led the Sycamores with 18 carries for 113 yards before leaving late in the first half with a separated right shoulder. The two-time Walter Payton finalist is expected to miss a couple of weeks.
The game also was marred by two ejections. Indiana's Jake Reed was thrown out in the first half after officials spotted him throwing a punch, and Indiana State defensive back Carlos Aviles was tossed out in the third quarter for hitting Wynn win helmet-to-helmet on a punt return.
