Hoosiers Drop Big Ten Opener To Newcomer Maryland

BLOOMINGTON, Ind.— The Indiana football team (2-2) dropped its Big Ten opener, 37-15, Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium to Maryland (4-1).

Redshirt freshman kicker Griffin Oakes accounted for Indiana’s first nine points on three field goals (38, 48, 58) in the first half. His 58-yard field goal as time expired in the first half is the longest in school history and the 10th-longest in Big Ten Conference history, while his 38-yarder in the first quarter marked the first of his career.

Junior running back Tevin Coleman rushed for his sixth consecutive 100-yard game (122), the longest streak in the nation. The Tinley Park, Ill., native also reached the end zone in the fourth quarter, marking his 13th straight game with a touchdown — the school record and the longest streak in the nation.
