BLOOMINGTON, Ind. 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.
