Indiana University Football summed up in a matter of 90 seconds, lose in overtime on a missed field goal attempt. This should come as no surprise to IU Football fans…

In a stunning turn of events, Indiana University ends their season in recognizable fashion, missing a field goal in overtime to lose the 2015 New Era Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium Saturday. The best kicker in the Big Ten, Griffen Oakes, misses 2 field goals on Saturday after only missing one the entire regular season. The most important and controversial miss came in overtime when the ball sailed over the top upright declaring that the field was no good. The play was also unreviewable, which Oakes clearly argued that he made.

The loss for Indiana is about more than just the missed field goal, but the inability to stop the run. Duke rushed for 373 yards compared to Indiana’s 278 yards on the day. The ability to stop the run has been a frustration for IU’s defense the whole entire season. Closing out games for IU has been difficult and heartbreaking.

With that said, this season has been a success. IU makes their first bowl game since the Insight Bowl in December of 2007 where they suffered a 49-33 loss to Oklahoma State.

Playing without first-team All-Big Ten running back Jordan Howard seemed to be an incredible loss to football fans that are unfamiliar with the depth of Indiana. MVP of the Pinstripe Bowl would have to go to RB Devine Redding. His statistics are as followed (impressive):

Indiana Hoosiers

 RB Devine Redding – 35 carries, 227 yards, TD

Duke Blue Devils

 RB Thomas Sirk – 20 carries, 155 yards, 2 TD

RB Jela Duncan – 13 carries, 109 yards

RB Shaun Wilson – 9 carries, 103 yards, TD

If there is one positive to take away for Indiana Football’s future, it is in the core of running backs with Jordan Howard (NFL eligible, not indicated) and Devine Redding (Sophomore). The explosive running game that Indiana brings is the brightest spot of this emerging team.

Special Congratulations from The Balance Team to the following Indiana Football Players:

#8 RB Jordan Howard – First Team All-Big Ten

#67 G Dan Feeney – First Team All-Big Ten; ESPN First Team All-American

#78 OT Jason Spriggs – Second Team All-Big Ten; FWAA First Team All-American
