Their defense continually stymied Indiana Northwest (2-4), an NAIA school, limiting it to just 16-of-66 shooting from the floor for 24.2 percent. It was the lowest percentage by an IUPUI opponent in the program's Division I era, which began in 1998. No Indiana Northwest player scored in double figures.

GOLSON REAPPLIES TO NOTRE DAME: Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly says the Fighting Irish are considerably healthier after a week off, particularly along the defensive line.
The Irish (7-3) held their first practice Monday since losing 28-21 at Pittsburgh on Nov. 9. It was the first time in Kelly's coaching career he's not held practice during an off week, saying he couldn't afford to risk further injuries.
Kelly described practice as rigorous to make sure the Irish were ready. Kelly says nobody on the two-deep chart is definitely out against BYU (7-3).
Kelly says suspended quarterback Everett Golson has submitted to be re-enrolled at Notre Dame after being suspended for the fall semester. Kelly says he expects to learn in mid-December if Golson will be allowed to return to school.
BEARS MAKE ROSTER CHANGES: The Bears waived vested veteran long snapper Jeremy Cain and signed linebacker Lawrence Wilson to the practice squad Tuesday.
Cain appeared in the last two games for Chicago as the Bears' long snapper.
The 6-foot-1, 229-pound Wilson was selected by Carolina in the sixth round (166th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft. He has spent time with Carolina, Tennessee, New Orleans and Chicago but has not appeared in a regular-season game. He spent the 2013 preseason with the Bears, making five tackles, including one tackle for a loss and two special teams stops.
COLTS PROMOTE CUNNINGHAM TO ACTIVE ROSTER: The Colts promoted tight end Justice Cunningham from the practice squad to the active roster Tuesday.
To make room for this year's Mr. Irrelevant in the draft, Indianapolis (7-3) waived receiver Griff Whalen.
Whalen played in six games this season, catching nine passes for 102 yards. He was originally signed by the Colts as an undrafted rookie in April 2012.
Cunningham was released in the Colts' final cutdown and joined the practice squad Sept. 2. At South Carolina, he caught 50 passes for 581 yards and one TD during his career.
VALPARAISO SIGNS FOUR RECRUITS: Georgi Donchetz, Danielle Franklin, Anne Hamilton and Jasmyn Walker recently signed their national letters of intent with Valparaiso.
Donchetz is a 5-foot-10 guard from Savage, Minn. The 6-1 Franklin, who hails from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has been nominated for the 2013-14 McDonald's All-American Team. Hamilton is a 6-0 guard from Minnetonka, Minn. Walker is a 5-10 guard from Muskegon, Mich.
