Best All-Time Season

1945 – With apologies to the 1967 team that tied a school record with nine wins, the 1945 edition was the best in Indiana history. That squad finished with a 9-0-1 record that featured victories over three ranked opponents, including a 49-0 blowout over Minnesota.

Although the Hoosiers had plenty of talent on offense, it was the defense that made that team so great. Indiana recorded four shutouts in 1945 and held its opponents to single digits in eight of its ten contests. More impressively, it only allowed eight points over the final five games of the season.

Best Player Of All-Time

Tevin Coleman, RB, 2014 – Even though everyone in the stadium knew he was getting the ball, opposing defensive coordinators had absolutely no answers for Tevin Coleman in 2014. He rushed for over 100 yards in 11 of 12 games that season and topped the 200-yard mark four times, including a 228-yard effort against Ohio State.

Coleman finished the 2014 campaign with a school-record 2,036 yards and amazing 7.5 yards per carry. He finished seventh in the Heisman Trophy voting and was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the 2015 NFL Draft.
