Indiana starting quarterback Michael Penix Jr. will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL in Saturday’s win against Maryland.

Coach Tom Allen on Monday confirmed the injury, which is to the same ligament Penix tore as a true freshman in 2018. He ended up redshirting the season. Penix suffered the injury while scrambling out of bounds at the Maryland 5-yard line with 4:36 left in the third quarter. The 12th-ranked Hoosiers won the game 27-11.

Jack Tuttle, a transfer from Utah, replaced Penix against Maryland and will start this week when Indiana visits No. 16 Wisconsin. Tuttle completed all five of his pass attempts for 31 yards against Maryland and drew praise from Allen for staying prepared.

Penix had 1,645 passing yards and 14 touchdowns with four interceptions this season and also rushed for two touchdowns. His 2-point conversion lifted Indiana over Penn State in overtime of the season opener, and he passed for a career-high 491 yards and five touchdowns Nov. 21 in Indiana’s 42-35 loss to No. 4 Ohio State. Injuries have cut short all three of Penix’s seasons at Indiana, as he suffered a clavicle injury last November that required surgery.
