QUICK NOTES: From Indiana’s 73-35 rout of Indiana State

How big of a win was it for the Hoosiers when they exploded for a school-record 10 touchdowns in a 73-35 victory over Indiana State on Thursday night?

— The 73 points are the second most ever scored by an Indiana football team, topped only by a 76-0 rout of Franklin College in 1901. That’s right, 112 years ago.

— Indiana had 300 yards passing and 300 yards rushing in the same game for the first-time ever with 319 in the air and 313 on the ground. The 632 yards of total offense are the third most in school history.

— IU’s 45 points in the first half are the most in school history, at least as far back as 1949 when the school began tracking such numbers by quarter.

— The 108 combined points are the most in Memorial Stadium history.

— Sophomore running back Tevin Coleman rushed for a career-best 169 yards on 14 carries, scoring twice.
