Good: Tayven Jackson, QB

Improving the quarterback play for the Hoosiers, Tayven Jackson has looked the part more than he hasn’t so far in 2023. Jackson has thrown for 749 yards and two touchdowns while adding an element with his ability to buy time in the pocket with his athleticism.

Great: Andre Carter, EDGE

Pushing the pocket with ease this season, Andre Carter has been an unstoppable force against the pass for Indiana. He’s reached home with two sacks and influenced the passing attack with a couple of pass breakups.

Grand: Aaron Casey, LB

What a missile Aaron Casey has been to the football. He leads the team with 41 tackles, 28 of which has been solo stops. He’s also blitzed well with two sacks and even dropped in coverage with the same level of skill.

Wonderful: Phillip Dunnam, S

With three picks and 29 tackles, Phillip Dunnam has been everywhere for the Hoosiers. He’s been stellar in coverage all season long and the Hoosiers secondary is underrated, mainly because of Dunnam’s play.
