It’s easy to see why Indiana loves head coach Tom Allen.

On Saturday night, the Hoosiers notched a huge victory over ACC foe Virginia, knocking off the Cavaliers 20-16 in a hard-fought battle. After Indiana stopped UVA’s last-chance Hail Mary attempt, Allen sprinted over to the student section.

Yeah, he was fired up after the victory.

Allen has some serious ups. Oh, and R.I.P. to that trash can he kicked over.

In all seriousness, Allen is one of the reasons college football is so special. A coach of a B1G program rushing over to celebrate with students who sat through the wind and rain and cheered the Hoosiers to victory.

Just true appreciation from the head coach.

Indiana moves to 2-0 on the year after the win. The Hoosiers close out the non-conference schedule next Saturday at home against Ball State.
