The Big Ten Network released a highlight reel of IU football’s top-50 passing plays for the memorable 2020 season.
Michael Penix, Jr. is of course featured prominently. He started all six games in which he appeared before he suffered a season-ending ACL injury. He completed 124-of-220 (56.4 percent) for 1,645 yards with 14 touchdowns and four interceptions. Penix averaged a Big Ten-leading 274.2 yards per game (18th nationally). His three 300-yard games shared third on IU’s single-season list.
One of Penix’s favorite targets was Ty Fryfogle, who became the first Hoosier to be named the Big Ten Richter-Howard Receiver of the Year. Fryfogle was the first receiver in Big Ten history to record back-to-back 200-yard games, and the first IU wide receiver to reach 200 yards twice. He led the team with 721 yards, 90.1 yards per game, seven touchdowns and 19.5 yards per reception.
