@BTNStatsGuys: 5 things to know about Indiana Hoosiers
Our annual summer football tour starts Monday with a stop in Bloomington, Indiana, to watch Kevin Wilson’s exciting team practice.
Before we arrive in Bloomington, let’s take a look at five nuggets for the Hoosiers entering the 2016 season.
1. The Hoosiers have set 47 offensive records in the last five seasons.
2. Indiana led the Big Ten in scoring last season for the first time since 1985. Here’s a closer look at the numbers, and where they ranked in the Big Ten:
PPG: 36.5 (1st)
Pass YPG: 293.8 (1st)
Rush YPG: 210.5 (2nd)
Total YPG: 504.3 (1st)
Yds per play: 7.6 (2nd)
3. While Indiana paced the Big Ten in offense, both scoring and total yards, it was the first Big Ten team since 2010 (Michigan) and just the fifth in the last 20 seasons to do so while boasting the conference’s worst defense (507.3 total yards).
4. In 37 career games, spanning 2,719 snaps, offensive lineman Dan Feeney has allowed one sack.
5. Linebacker Marcus Oliver, who tallied 112 tackles in 2015, good for seventh in the Big Ten, became the program’s first player to reach the century mark since 2009.
