Here’s everything you missed this week with IU sports.
The IU women’s volleyball team kicked off its Big Ten homestand with a dominating performance over the Iowa Hawkeyes three sets to none.
Junior Morgan Geddes led the way for the Hoosiers with 12 kills and sophomore setter Cameron Hayworth contributed with an impressive 32 assists and six kills of her own.
They had an incredible team-hitting percentage of .308 as this win marked the first back-to-back conference wins for IU since 2018.
The women were unable to make it three straight, losing at home to the sixth-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes 3-1 on Saturday night. Mady saris had the team high with 11 kills but the Hoosiers had a poor hitting day only averaging .069 as a team.
They have a chance to get back in the win column against a difficult seventh-ranked Wisconsin team at home Wednesday night.
The IU football team dropped their first Big Ten game of the season at Nebraska Saturday night, 35-21, to move to 3-2 on the season and 1-1 in the conference.
After trailing early, the Hoosiers erased a 14-point deficit to knot the score at 21 before halftime.
Quarterback Connor Bazelak and the offense would never find that groove in the second half and finished the game just 2 for 15 on third-down conversions.
Head coach Tom Allen mentioned after the game the costliness of penalties (IU had 11) and the lack of execution as reasons for the loss.
The IU men’s soccer team won their first conference game of the season, taking down the Northwestern Wildcats at home Tuesday night, 4-1.
Indiana was scoreless through the first half with five shots on goal.
After going down 1-0 in the 47th minute, IU would not look back, scoring three goals in just six minutes after to take a 3-1 lead as IU cruised to a victory.
On the road facing Michigan on Sunday IU battled back down to tie and pick up their third draw of the season and second in big ten play, 2-2.
Reigning big ten defensive player of the year Daniel Munie saw his first action since August 9th and scored the equalizer in the 82nd minute.
The women’s soccer team remained scoreless in the Big Ten with two losses this past week to Ohio State and Nebraska.
Indiana found themselves down one at the break in both games but was unable to come up with offensive scores.
They finished both games with three shots on goal and will look to notch their first conference win next Sunday at Rutgers.
Finally, a record-breaking performance from redshirt senior and Columbia transfer Alexis Florio.
Florio shot a six-under-par in the Edie Odom invitational final round as she set the all-time IU women’s golf record for the lowest round by an individual in any tournament.
Florio also set the record for the lowest total tournament score by an IU women’s golfer with a 205 – five-under. These impressive feats have not only etched her name in IU’s history but have put IU women’s golf on the map around the country. Congratulations, Alexis!
