We continue our position group analysis by examining one of the steadiest position groups on the team: running back.
Over the next month or so, we’ll analyze the performance of each IUFB position group during the 2019 season. Today, we start with IU’s safeties, probably the position group that struggled the most this season.
It was a massively successful regular season in Bloomington with the Hoosiers winning 8 games. That great performance led Indiana and Tom Allen to agree to a new 7-year contract extension that will keep the Hoosier native at IU for the foreseeable future.
Indiana’s win against Purdue gave Indiana the decade victory against the Boilers for the first time since the 1940s. It also gave Indiana 8 regular season victories for the first time since 1993. A historical season in Bloomington.
Indiana heads to Purdue for an opportunity to win at least 8 games in a season for just the 8th time in program history and the first since 1993. While the Old Oaken Bucket itself is a big deal, winning this game is especially important.
