Indiana coach Tom Allen accidentally body slams player in Michigan celebration
Indiana coach Tom Allen was a little too eager to celebrate the Hoosiers’ win over Michigan.
After the game-sealing interception by Devon Matthews, Allen rewarded him with a form tackle:
Forgive @CoachAllenIU for being a bit over-eager. 😂
Can confirm no Targeting was called: pic.twitter.com/H7VbGGaAS9

That’s an awesome moment for Allen, who has the Hoosiers 3-0 on the season and in a tie for first place in the Big Ten East.
However, it looks like Allen took the brunt of that hit.

This was Indiana’s first win over Michigan since 1987. The Wolverines had previously won 24 straight games in this series.
Quarterback Michael Penix Jr. was excellent, completing 30-of-50 passes for 352 yards and three touchdowns.
Indiana also has wins over Penn State and Illinois this season. The Hoosiers will try to move to 4-0 next week against Michigan State.
