Bloomington, IN—Here are the top performers from Indiana’s rivalry win over Purdue:
Top Offensive Performers:
Peyton Ramsey, QB, Indiana- Ramsey capped off the regular season with his gutsiest performance yet that included a run for a first down that ended in an Elway-like helicopter tackle. He completed 23-of-39 passes for 337 yards and three touchdowns. Ramsey added two touchdowns on the ground, including the game winner in double overtime.
Sampson James, RB, Indiana- The true freshman was tremendous before leaving with an injury in the second half. James filled in for Stevie Scott and ran for 118 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries.
Whop Philyor, WR, Indiana- The Hoosiers needed Philyor to be back. After missing the Michigan game, he made eight catches for 138 yards and two touchdowns.
Zander Horvath, RB, Purdue- The big running back was a man possessed against IU running for 164 yards and two touchdowns. He averaged 7.1 yards per carry and was a major reason why Purdue was able to dig out of a 14-0 hole.
Brycen Hopkins, TE, Purdue- Hopkins showed why he will be playing on Sundays. He scored on a 72-yard catch-and-run and had another touchdown in overtime and a two-point conversion in the fourth quarter. He finished with eight catches for 142 yards and two scores.
David Bell, WR, Purdue- Holy cow, David Bell can make all the catches. In all Bell made nine catches for 136 yards and a score, but no catch was more impressive than one where he got up off his back to dive and catch a ball that was under-thrown.
Top Defensive Performers
Tiawan Mullen, CB, Indiana- Mullen has had an outstanding true freshman season and it is hard to imagine an IU win on Saturday without his efforts. Mullen led IU with eight tackles and tackles for loss (2.5), forced and recovered a fumble and broke up four passes.
Jerome Johnson, DL, Indiana- Johnson helped try and slow the Purdue offense down with seven tackles and two tackles for loss.
Derrick Barnes, LB, Purdue- Barnes was all over the field for the Boilermakers making 10 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss including 2.5 sacks.
George Karlaftis, DL, Purdue- Purdue’s other stud freshman made five tackles including 1.5 sacks. He had a tremendous freshman season.
