IU adds new look to offense with 2 QBs

Posted by Mike Mardis - email

BLOOMINGTON, IN (AP) - Quarterback Kellen Lewis is getting a new role at Indiana, and he showed it in a weekend Big Ten loss to visiting Michigan State.

The Spartans became the guinea pig for Hoosiers coach Bill Lynch's unconventional concept Saturday, when Lewis was moving around in formations almost as much as he does in the pocket.

He played receiver, running back and, of course, quarterback.

He even punted the ball and pinned it inside the 20.

Despite the effort, Michigan State's offense dominated in the 42-29 win in Bloomington.

It was the conference opener for both teams.
