Eventhough Indiana has struggled as a team this year, their offense has had its moments.

The Hoosiers have scored 20 points vs. Ball State, 31 vs. Virginia, 38 vs. South Carolina State, 21 vs. North Texas, 20 vs. Illinois, 24 against Iowa and 38 against Northwestern.

Leading the way is true freshman quarterback Tre Roberson who threw for 169 yards against Northwestern last week with a touchdown. He also ran for a TD while gaining a career-high 121 yards on the ground.

Roberson is the first true freshman to ever start at QB for IU and the 12th nationally in 2011. He celebrated his 19th birthday by becoming the third Hoosier to earn Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors in 2011.

Roberson is very dangerous throwing an running ala OSU’s Braxton Miller.

He did earn Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors two weeks ago at Iowa.

In Big Ten play, Roberson is seventh in total offense (196.0 per game) and eighth in rushing (65.0). Michigan’s Denard Robinson is the lone quarterback with a higher per game rushing average (68.2).

Roberson earned the state of Indiana’s 2010 Mr. Football Award at Lawrence Central High School in Indianapolis. He passed for 2,611 yards, 24 touchdowns and four interceptions and rushed for 1,992 yards and 22 TD’s.

He comes from an athletic background as his grandfather, Larry Highbaugh, played defensive back and ran track at Indiana from 1968-71. Highbaugh played briefly with the Dallas Cowboys, then spent 13 years in the Canadian Football League and was inducted into that league’s Hall of Fame in 2004.

 

 

IU’s offense ranks 75th in the nation with 378 total yards per game and it ranks 89th nationally with 22 points per game.
