The Tom Allen era at Indiana started on a semi-positive note last week.

Last week against the Ohio State Buckeyes, the Indiana Hoosiers hung around for 2 1/2 quarters. However, the Hoosiers still lost by 28 when it was all said and done. But on Saturday, the Allen claimed its first win.

On Saturday against the Virginia Cavaliers, Indiana won 34-17. Since it was Allen’s first win of his head coaching career as the Hoosiers’ head man, he received the game ball plus another game ball to give to his dad.


The Hoosiers will try to build on this success next Saturday, Sept. 16, against Florida International.
