Here are some key stories from the weekend for Indiana.

Cam Jones is a Super Bowl Champion.

Former Indiana standout linebacker Cam Jones joins an exclusive list of former Hoosiers who have won Super Bowl rings when the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII last night. Though he was ruled out of Sunday night's game due to injury, Jones was a contributor for the Chiefs, primarily on special teams this season.

Before Jones won with the Chiefs, another former linebacker won a ring with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Cincinnati Bengals. Tegray Scales was on the practice squad with both teams when during their Super Bowl years, winning one with the Buccaneers.

Mackenzie Holmes is Indiana Women's Basketball's All-Time leading Scorer

Holmes needed 16 points to break Tyra Buss' scoring record. The graduate player got 17 in Indiana's 95-62 dismantling of the Purdue Boilermakers Sunday afternoon at Assembly Hall. She now has 2,365 points. Not only is Holmes Indiana's all-time leader in points, she is also the career leader in field goal percentage (.637) and blocks (193).

The win also means that the Hoosiers are undefeated against the Boilermakers during Holmes' career in Bloomington. Indiana has won 10 straight against the Boilermakers. Purdue hasn't won at Assembly Hall since 2012.

Around the Big Ten

Superstar Caitlin Clark will have to wait until they play Michigan to break Kelsey Plum's NCAA scoring mark. Clark was shutout during the fourth quarter of Iowa's 82-79 loss to Nebraska. Clark needed 39 points to break the record; she scored 31.

In a surprising move, Chip Kelly stepped down as head coach of UCLA to become Ohio State's new offensive coordinator. Former Alabama and New England Patriot's offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien was slated to take the job but was hired by Boston College as its new head coach.

Ohio State women's basketball has won 11-straight games. They were rewarded in the polls, moving to number two, behind South Carolina.
