Michael Penix Jr. had an incredible game against Michigan State, and the quarterback nearly led an upset of the Spartans on the road.

Unfortunately, the Hoosiers fell just short in that Week 5 contest, but the work of Penix did not go unnoticed. He finished the game 33-for-42 passing for 286 yards and 4 total TDs against a particularly strong defense.

In fact, Penix set a school record with a span of 20 straight completions in the game against the Spartans. It was a beautiful stretch with Penix mixing in a variety of throws to all of Indiana’s receivers.

Coming off of a bye week, Penix discussed that performance Monday. In video comments of Penix shared by Matt Weaver with Peegs.com, Penix admitted that the offense was unaware of the quarterback’s impressive streak of completions.

However, the offense did notice it was an efficient stretch for the unit as a whole:

“We didn’t realize it didn’t hit the ground, but we realized we were moving the ball and things were going good,” explained Penix. “It could have been better, but it was definitely going good for us.”

Hopefully, Penix and the offense can keep the strong play going against Rutgers in Week 7.
