Lynch Plans Work On Hoosiers' Defense

June 18, 2010 Updated Nov 5, 2008 at 12:34 AM EST

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Indiana coach Bill Lynch is focusing on
fixing a defense that has allowed over 35 points per game in Big
Ten play.
The 3-6 Hoosiers have struggled to stop opponents since the
season's second game, primarily because of an inability to stop the
run. Opponents have averaged more than 193 yards rushing in
conference play, the second worst among Big Ten teams.
And last week, Central Michigan's backup quarterback Brian
Brunner threw for a school-record 485 yards and four touchdowns.
Starting safety Austin Thomas and starting cornerback Chris
Phillips are out for the season, and backup safety Jerimy Finch has
missed four games and is questionable again this week.
The Hoosiers take on 4-5 Wisconsin on Saturday.
