Hoosiers drop fourth in a row

Sophomore quarterback Ben Chappell is tackled at the line of scrimmage during the Hoosiers 45-9 loss to Iowa on Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium. The 2-4 Hoosiers suffered its fourth loss in a row.

For the fourth straight week, the IU football team found itself leaving the gridiron on a sour note as the Iowa Hawkeyes stormed into Bloomington and downed the Hoosiers with ease.

Last year, playing a team like Iowa was business as usual. But as evidenced by the half-empty Memorial Stadium in the third quarter, the deflated IU sideline and the 45-9 loss, the promise Lynch instilled in the program last year continues to slowly fade away.
Iowa became the third team this year to put up at least 40 points on the IU defense this year and it was the second straight game the Hoosiers failed to eclipse double digits in points.

Now at 2-4, the Hoosiers remain winless in the Big Ten as they head to Illinois next week.
