BLOOMINGTON — Indiana continued to battle at home with Big 10 heavyweight Penn State. The No. 18 Nittany Lions beat the Hoosiers 33-28.
Indiana quarterback Peyton Ramsey was able to complete 26 of 36 for 236 yards but the Hoosiers relied on their rushers for all but one of their touchdowns. Stevie Scott ran for 138 yards and two touchdowns, with his first being a five yard rush to tie the game 7-7 just fine minutes into the game.
Both teams exchanged blows and points as Penn State led 17-14 going into the half. Ronnie Walker Jr. scored the second Hoosier touchdown.
Indiana led the game twice, once before the half and then again after Scott took a handoff to go up 20-21 after two Penn State field goals.
From this point on, Lions’ qb Trace McSorley controlled the game. Though he threw an interception and no touchdowns, he was the lead rusher with 107 yards and his teams’ final two scores to cement the win.
Penn State fumbled four times to Indiana three. Neither team scored from forced turnovers.
Indiana will travel to Minnesota next week after handing Nebraska it’s first win.
Penn State will host No. 19 Iowa.
