BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Michael Penix Jr. threw two touchdown passes and ran for another, and the Indiana Hoosiers scored two special teams touchdowns for the first time since 1969 in a 56-14 rout over Idaho Saturday night.
Indiana has won 18 of its last 20 home openers, though few were more dominant than this game as Indiana evened its record at 1-1 on the young season.
The Hoosiers took a 21-0 first-quarter lead. Javon Swinton returned a block punt for a score, and D.J. Mathews Jr.'s 81-yard punt return made the score 35-0 before the Vandals had a first down.
IU (1-1) hosts Cincinnati (2-0) Saturday, Sept. 18 at noon ET.
