The Hoosiers fought hard, they had their chances, but the result was all to familiar — a loss.
Indiana’s bowl drought continued with a 26-24 loss to No. 19 Utah in Wednesday night’s Fosters Farm Bowl. The Hoosiers (6-7) haven’t won a bowl game since 1991.
Indiana will likely look back on this game as one full of missed opportunities. Quarterback Richard Lagow completed only 14-of-39 passes for 188 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He ball was knocked out of his hand on the final play of the game as he attempted to make a Hail Mary toss to the end zone.
Running back Devine Redding lost a fumble in the red zone, and for the second year in a row, kicker Griffin Oakes missed a critical field-goal attempt in a bowl game. And in Tom Allen‘s first game as Indiana’s head coach, Indiana completely mismanaged the clock on the final drive of the game, one that could have given them a chance at a game-winning FG.
