One of our weekly features in our postgame coverage is to take a look back at how Indiana’s true freshmen performed in Saturday’s game. Multiple Hoosier freshmen saw action against Mizzou for the third game in a row.
Devine Redding stepped in to pace the ground game nicely with 10 carries for 49 yards after Tevin Coleman was sidelined for an extended period of time during the first half. Redding set up the Hoosiers’ second touchdown of the game. He had a long gain of 16 yards toward the end of the half.
J-Shun Harris II wasn’t targeted often, but still made major contributions. He finished with 43 yards on two receptions, one of which was a 33-yard TD reception from Nate Sudfeld that gave IU the go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter.
