It’s early in the season, so it comes as no surprise that we saw a lot of new looks across the Big Ten during Week 2 action. See all of the uniform and helmet alterations the Big Ten showcased Saturday in this post. Have a picture of a Big Ten uniform or arena/stadium alteration? Please tweet it to me (@BTNBrentYarina) for my Clothes Call blog.
It was a busy afternoon of Big Ten football action, with six games during the middle block. The results weren’t exactly what the Big Ten had hoped for, either, as it went 3-3 after opening the day 2-1 in the early games. Read my snap reactions to the afternoon games in this post.
Indiana team officials told ESPN that QB Tre Roberson broke his leg on a running play in the second quarter of Saturday’s game against Massachusetts. Roberson had scored on runs of 50 and 39 yards before leaving the game, and Indiana spoiled Massachusetts’ first home game as a Football Bowl Subdivision member with a 45-6 win on Saturday.
There were more punts than points in the third quarter and the margin is still 32, as Indiana leads 38-6. With neither team able to move the ball, there were four punts in the quarter.
Indiana quarterback Tre Roberson injured his leg on a running play with 12:55 to go in the second quarter. The sophomore quarterback was put on a stretcher and taken off the field in an ambulance. Roberson was replaced by backup quarterback Cameron Coffman.
Tre Roberson threw for 85 yards and one touchdown and ran for 89 yards and two touchdowns for Indiana and the Hoosiers lead 21-6 at the end of the first quarter. Indiana threw for 85 yards and ran for 157 yards in the first quarter.
