Northwestern held off a furious rally from Indiana to beat the Hoosiers 44-29 today.

The Wildcats’ offense was firing on all cylinders and set a new school record with more than 700 yards of total offense against the Hoosiers. The previous record was 674 yards, set in 2005 against Wisconsin.

Junior quarterback Kain Colter was at the heart of the performance, having a career day all around. He set career marks in rushing yards, rushing touchdowns, receptions, receiving yards and total offense. His four rushing touchdowns accounted for 80 percent of NU’s touchdowns and came at crucial moments in the game.
