    Starting the 2011 Season Coach Alemic took over the Indiana Hoosiers after a disappointing season with the Idaho Vandals. The Indiana Hoosiers were traded by the Big 10 for Nebraska and sent to the Big 12. Their first year was a terrible one and the school's prestige dropped down to 1 star. This year they hope coach Alemic can turn things around.

    In a week 1 match up against the Indiana Hoosiers and the Ohio State Buckeyes, nobody gave the Hoosiers a chance. They were pitiful last year when the move to the Big 12 was made, they have a new coach implementing a new playbook, not enough talent. The pieces are just not there is what folks around Indiana were saying, but inside the locker room you would of never of guessed any of those things to be true. Head coach Alemic bolted after a terrible first season with Idaho with a chance to coach at Indiana and folks in the west were not to happy with him, while in Indiana they saw him as a chance to save the program.

    Indiana would win the coin toss and defer to the second half. On the Buckeyes first drive they would be forced to a quick 3 and out. Things were already showing signs to be an instant classic, what use to be a Big 10 game was becoming an intense out of conference game. The Hoosiers had one thing in mind, pound the ball at this physical Ohio State offense and limit the passing attempts due to the depth at CB and safeties. On their first drive they did just that pounding the ball down to the 1 yard line, and on 4th and 1 punched it in. After a couple of punts Ohio State found themselves with the ball on their own 6. Running back Dan Herron busted a huge 94 yard TD run. Indiana would drive to midfield and be forced to punt the ball away, and on the punt Ohio State fumbled the ball and it was an easy scoop and score. The Buckeyes would answer just before half, making the score 14-14.

    The second half is where the legends of the game are made and the Hoosiers first drive took over 5 minutes off the clock while the scored the TD. The Buckeyes would capitalize on their own long drive tying the game up at 21 all. Indiana would get the ball back with just under 4 minutes left to play, and they started pounding the ball once again. Reaching mid field with just over 2:40 left in the game, they would fumble the ball away to Ohio State. After a first down pass on the first play, Ohio State would make it second and inches. The Indiana defense would stop them behind the line on the first play, then an incomplete pass. It would be 4th and 1, and the Buckeyes would go for it, attempting a play action pass. Indiana called the perfect play to stop it, a OLB on the blitz came unblocked, and took down the QB Indiana ball. With just over 1:10 left in the game, Dusty Keil would find Duwyce Wilson who would break a couple tackles and take it to the house. 28-21 with 1:02 left in the game. The Buckeyes would drive down and score with 29 seconds left but would MISS THE EXTRA POINT! After a failed onside kick and 2 kneel downs later. Game over upset of the year.

    Final Score:
    Indiana 28 Ohio State 27

    Key Stats:
    Passing
    Dusty Keil 9-11 160 Yards 1 TD 0 INT

    Rushing

    Nick Turner 8 attempts -1 yards 2 TD

    Down goes an NCAA record!​

    This one was dubbed the College Game Day game of the week putting up coach Alemic against his old school the Idaho Vandals. Folks around Moscow are still hurt after their coach left after only one year with the team. The Vandals lost week 1 but only by 4 to a talented Stanford team, while the Hoosiers upset the #2 ranked Buckeyes of Ohio State. This match up put two of the twelve spot light coaches and looked like it was going to shape up to be a good one.​
    Indiana on the other hand had another type of game in mind. Darius Willis would break an NCAA single game rushing record, busting out an outstanding 430 yards. Nobody would of been able to call the total domination Indiana put up this week. Idaho's main form of offense came through the passing game to their TE. On their first drive they fumbled the ball away and Indiana punched the ball in on the ground. The second drive would end with a field goal, however Indiana would once again find the endzone. Idaho thought they would remain close by scoring a TD with under 30 seconds left in the first quarter, only to see Willis break a 78 yard TD run. The game would be essentially over after that.​
    Final Score:​
    Indiana 35 Idaho 24​
