is because this is a management situation. this is where you tell your guys you don't want to run out of bounds. a young guy in mccormick, he runs out of bounds. you don't want the clock to stop. the last thing you want to do is get forced to kick a field goal with 1:20 left. >> gus: tyler huntley has incredible speed. 2nd & goal at the 11. hotly runs it. -- huntley, only a couple. the indiana calls a timeout with 1:34 to go. 24-23. can the hoosiers hold on? we'll see right after this. there's one of these....

offense? >> joel: the important thing to know if you are richard lagow is the entire field is at your disposal until you don't have a timeout left. you can throw it deep over the middle. you can use the exterior outside the numbers. use what utah gives you. >> gus: 1st & 10 at the 30-yard line. lagow. and he's sacked. third of the game. wow. >> joel: they were rushing and playing deep coverage for you don't expect the sack. effort up front gets to the quarterback. >> gus: loss of 9. lagow. incomplete. westbrook got drilled. hansen just throwing his body around. >> joel: hansen and westbrook
went up for the ball, and that's the collision. that was the same type of route they threw on the third down conversion on the last touchdown drive. hansen was ready for it this time. >> gus: chase hansen, he's one of the toughest kids we've seen in college football this year. >> joel: great athlete. came into tonight ball game with 86 tackles on the season. 216 pounder. he missed spring camp last year recovering from a season-ending injury but came in and played terrific all year long at his safety position. now he'll have to come out unlikely we will see jordan fogal, number 13, come in the ball game at safety. filled in when marcus was
injured. the game against ucla. >> gus: that will make it a third down and 19 for indiana with 50 seconds remaining from the 21. >> joel: they have to get all of it back. this is four down territory. get whatever you can. >> gus: lagow out over the shotgun. lagow underneath. paige trying to get out of bounds, and he goes down at the 30-yard line. are you getting back to the lin line. >> joel: should have used their timeout. >> gus: fourth fourth down and. do or die for indiana.

ten yards to be comfortable, seven to try his career-long. something quick on the outside. i think you can do that in five seconds. utah has got everybody back deep. i would throw something short and to the sidelines as quick as possible. >> gus: lagow. he's got paige as the receiver at the bottom of your screen. lagow is going to throw the hail mary. >> referee: false start. 54 on the offense. 5-yard penalty. still first down. reset the game clock at five seconds. >> gus: not a runoff situation. that was a dead clock to begin with. penalty did not stop a running clock. they will have the opportunity here.
