BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Cameron Coffman is getting the first crack to be Indiana's new starting quarterback.
Keeping the job for the rest of this season might take some work.
The junior college transfer with the NFL pedigree played well enough last weekend in relief of the injured Tre Roberson to convince coach Kevin Wilson that he should start this weekend against Ball State.
That's good news for a team that is chasing a third straight win and could match the school's longest winning streak since 2000. Indiana (2-0) also opened the 2005, 2009 and 2010 seasons at 3-0.
Coffman, who had been listed No. 2 on the depth chart each of the first two weeks, finished Saturday's game 16 of 22 for 159 yards with one touchdown in a rainstorm.
