Everything Tom Allen Said After Loss To Ohio State (247sports.com)

There’s no head-hanging in the Indiana locker room following

according to Hoosiers coach Tom Allen, whose team nearly erased a 21-point second-half deficit against a team most have penciled in as a College Football Playoff frontrunner this season.

The Hoosiers had two possessions to tie the game in the final four minutes, but poor field position on both occasions damaged their chances.

“There’s no consolation,” Allen said. “We came here to win the game and being close isn’t good enough. I’m proud of our guys. I think we’re showing we’re a really good football team. We’re not there yet.

“To me, it’s about continuing to show and prove on the field that we’re one of the top programs in the Big Ten.”

Indiana held Ohio State quarterback and Heisman contender Justin Fields in check throughout the contest, swiping three interceptions vs. a player who had previously recorded a record-setting 41:1 touchdown to interception ratio during his career in the Big Ten.
