Hard to say anything bad about a secondary that held Indiana to just 68 yards through the air. The group was responsible for five pass breakups and an interception by Jesse Della Valle. Aside from their tremendous job in coverage, the secondary was active against the run and effective when coming up to help on Diamont scrambles. Jordan Lucas led the way with six tackles and Trevor Williams, Marcus Allen and Christian Campbell were all able to come up with tackles behind the line of scrimmage. The secondary was helped by Indiana’s inability to throw the ball and a few drops, but overall it was a great performance.
