Nikita Kotlov scored off a header pass from Eriq Zavaleta midway through the second half to give Indiana a 1-0 victory over Georgetown on Sunday to win the NCAA men's soccer championship in Hoover, Ala.
It is the eighth championship for the Hoosiers (16-5-3), and their first since 2004.
Indiana midfielder Patrick Doody lofted a crossing pass to the right of the goal that brought Georgetown goalkeeper Tomas Gomez out from the net.
Zavaleta got to the ball before either Gomez or Hoyas defender Jimmy Nealis and sent a header to Kotlov, who kicked it into the open net with 27 minutes left.
