NCAA Game Summary - Penn State at Indiana



(Saturday, October 5)

Final Score: Indiana 44, Penn State 24

Bloomington, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - Nate Sudfeld threw for 321 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Indiana Hoosiers to a 44-24 victory over the Penn State Nittany Lions in a Big Ten Conference bout at Memorial Stadium.

Sudfeld completed 23-of-38 passes and threw an interception in his third 300- yard passing performance of the season for Indiana (3-2, 1-0 Big Ten). Sudfeld's primary target was Cody Latimer, who logged career highs in both receptions (nine) and yards (140). Kofi Hughes was also effective out wide with four catches for 85 yards and a score, while Tevin Coleman turned 20 carries into 92 yards and a touchdown. Tre Roberson finished with just 12 rushing yards but converted a pair of short touchdown runs.

For PSU (3-2, 0-1), Christian Hackenberg had a career-best performance, completing 30-of-55 passes for 340 yards, tossing three touchdowns paired with zero interceptions. Allen Robinson hauled in 12 passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns in his fourth 100-yard receiving day of the season, while Zach Zwinak had 72 yards on 17 carries,

Indiana got the scoring started late in the first quarter when Sudfeld threw a five-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah Roundtree to give the Hoosiers an early advantage.

The Nittany Lions tied things up at the 9:16 mark of the second quarter following a 46-yard touchdown pass from Hackenberg to Robinson.

Indiana drove deep into PSU territory on two occasions late in the second quarter but had to settle for a pair of Mitch Ewald field goals (24, 27), the latter coming as time expired in the first half.

PSU regained the lead at the 9:18 mark of the third quarter when Hackenberg connected with Robinson on a 26-yard touchdown strike. The scoring play capped off a 13-play, 80-yard drive that lasted less than three and a half minutes.

The see saw continued just 1:22 later when Coleman ripped off a 44-yard touchdown run. After Tre Roberson successfully rushed in the two-point conversion, Indiana held a 21-14 lead.

The Nittany Lions cut their deficit to four at the end of the third quarter when Sam Ficken knocked through a 30-yard field goal, but Indiana responded by piecing together an 11-play, 75-yard drive, capped off with a two-yard rushing touchdown by Roberson.

Indiana put the game out of reach by scoring a pair of touchdowns just 12 seconds apart. After Sudfeld hooked up with Hughes on a 36-yard scoring strike with 10:42 left in the game, PSU lost a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, which allowed Roberson to convert a nine-yard touchdown rush.

Hackenberg tossed a 16-yard touchdown pass to Bill Belton later in the fourth quarter. The PSU quarterback also lost a fumble deep in his own territory late in the game, which was recovered by a teammate in the end zone for a safety.

PSU lost despite converting 11-of-22 third down attempts and owning more than 35 minutes of possession time.
