In its win against the Razorbacks on Saturday afternoon, the Hoosiers got down early in both the first and second half of the contest, as Arkansas stymied their offense and they was unable to string together enough stops.
But before letting Arkansas run away with things, the Hoosiers clamped down on defense, made the hustle plays and were able to erase the early deficits.
