Pretty crazy sequence.

Michigan almost gets the W on an Indiana own goal. And then Indiana gets a free kick at the top of the box. 

#18 Michigan ties #1 Indiana, 1-1 in 2OT.

First non-loss against a #1 ranked team in the program's 18 year history.

Michigan moves to 4-0-2 and will face #6 MSU at U-M Soccer Stadium on Sunday. 

Pretty nice result, honestly. Stole 1 point is what we did tonight. A win on Sunday would be a program direction-changing win after getting this result tonight.

A huge brain fart on defense is what allowed Indiana to escape with a tie. This could've been a shutout win.

This was basically the soccer version of the JT Floyd play in 2010

 

The OT winless streak continues, unfortunately. 

We are an unbelievable, unlucky, mind-blowing 0-5-10 in our last 15 OT games going back to the 2015 season.

I've lived in Bloomington five years now. Am glad to have finally attended one of these games. Layered elsewhere, however, is a sense of unspeakable lameness for having attended without bothering to check the teams' national ranks. IU is #1? Knowing that now, I'll say they sure didn't look any amount superior to Michigan. The blue jerseys seemed to cumulatively possess the ball 2-3x as much as the white ones.

Maryland had a game vs Indiana the other night on BTN and the stadium was packed.  I love to see the non-revenue sports getting some good crowds, TV coverage and publicity.  There's so much other soccer out there available for viewing but I think the NCAA soccer product is getting better.  Glad to see Michigan is doing so well - gonna tune in a lot this season!

The top teams in the Big Ten are (in no particular order) Indiana, Maryland, Michigan State.  Michigan is probablly at the top of the pack behind them.  But if Michigan can get the win against MSU, the conference championship should be decided in the last game of the season, with Michigan playing at Maryland.
