Eyeing IU


IU can't complete comeback

Another Saturday, another close loss.

Instead of not holding a lead, as was the case the previous two weeks, Indiana couldn't complete a comeback falling to Wisconsin 31-28.

The Hoosiers converted two fourth downs in the fourth quarter. The second was on a 2-yard touchdown by Trea Burgess to get IU within three points with 4:01 to go.

But IU couldn't stop Wisconsin on a third-and-8, as the Badgers completed a pass for 17 yards to essentially end the game.

Indiana lost its third straight and sixth in seven contests. Three of the losses have come by three or fewer points.

"When it comes down to it, losing several games by three or less points, you just have to do more," senior safety Austin Thomas said. "We have to step up, make more plays than they do, and we have no excuses."

IU played much of the second half without running back Darius Willis, who left the game with a "lower leg" injury.
