School records fall in IU's blowout victory

Indiana set single game, single season and a few individual career records in the 56-36 victory over Purdue Saturday for the Old Oaken Bucket. Here is the list.

Indiana set a host of single game and single season records during its 56-36 victory over Purdue Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

Here are some of the highlights:

1. TOTAL YARDS (GAME)

Indiana had 692 yards of total offense Saturday, a school record. The Hoosiers ran for 401 yards (a season high) and passed for 291 yards.

2. FIRST DOWNS (GAME)

Indiana had 42 first downs, shattering the previous record of 35 set against Michigan in 2010. IU had 26 first downs rushing, 13 passing and three by penalty.

3. THREE PLAYERS OVER 100 YARDS RUSHING

For the first time in school history, Indiana had three players gain more than 100 yards rushing. Tre Roberson led the way with a career-high 154 yards. Stephen Houston, who ran for more than 100 yards in all three of his career games against Purdue, had 120 on Saturday. D'Angelo Roberts ran for a career-high 113 yards.

4. SIX TOUCHDOWN PASSES IN A GAME

Roberson threw six touchdown passes tying a school record that was set 70 years ago. Roberson completed 25-of-37 passes for 273 yards and six touchdowns. That ties Bob Hoernschemeyer who threw six touchdown passes at Nebraska in 1943. Roberson also threw an interception in the end zone on a first-and-goal situation or he potentially could have had seven TD passes.
