The FOX broadcast crew revealed just before kickoff Indiana is back to a two quarterback rotation.
Tayven Jackson started the game in Ann Arbor, but Brendan Sorsby came in for the third drive.
Coach Tom Allen said Jackson was the starter earlier this week, which is technically still true, but this news comes as a surprise after Jackson earned the full-time starting job in week three.
Jackson threw an interception on Indiana’s second drive of the game after entering the Michigan red zone. He was 7-of-11 for 52 yards passing on his first two drives.
Sorsby completed 1-of-2 passes and ran for 24 yards on his first drive.
Despite playing two quarterbacks, it was wide receiver Donaven McCulley, IU’s starting quarterback at Michigan in 2021, who threw the Hoosiers first touchdown pass on Saturday afternoon. That came on Sorsby’s first drive.
Allen said during a second quarter television interview the plan was to ride the hot hand. Sorsby stayed on the field for his second and third consecutive drives.
