BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Although in just his second full season, Indiana University coach Tom Allen knows the program history.
The Hoosiers are seeking a 4-0 start for just the eighth time in the school history when it hosts No. 24 Michigan State (1-1) in the Big Ten opener for both teams at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
"We are going to be absolutely focused on Michigan State and everything we have to do to win this game," Allen said. "To me that's the next step. You take them one at a time. We try to train a team to think that way, allow them to play their very, very best. We know we play in a great league with a lot of great teams. This is a great opportunity for us to take the next step in our season, which is to be 1-0 at the end of the week."
