Indiana Head Coach Kevin Wilson is hoping one of his quarterbacks will step up in practice but until they do, he will not name a starter for this Saturday's home game versus Michigan State.
Freshman Nate Sudfeld relieved last week's starter Cameron Coffman in the second half versus Northwestern and went 9-of-16 for 157 yards and a touchdown. Coffman was 13-of-23 for 109 yards and an interception in the first half but the Hoosiers were down 20-0 after two quarters. Indiana lost to Northwestern by a score of 44-29.
Wilson told the Associated Press that he doesn't think the shuffling of quarterbacks will hurt the team as a whole:
"Our players like both guys," Wilson said. "I don’t think they really think much about it. They both are similar in what they do. The offense doesn’t change. I like both of them."
For the season, Sudfeld is 25-of-40 for 357 yards and three touchdowns. Coffman is 53-of-80 for 518 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in 2012.
