Hoosiers use fast start to rout Idaho 56-14 in home opener
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Michael Penix Jr. threw two touchdown passes and ran for another and the Indiana Hoosiers scored two special teams touchdowns for the first time since 1969 in a 56-14 rout over Idaho.
Indiana has won 18 of its last 20 home openers though few were more dominant than this game.
The Hoosiers took a 21-0 first-quarter lead. Javon Swinton returned a block punt for a score and D.J. Mathews Jr.’s an 81-yard punt return made it 35-0 before the Vandals had a first down.
