Keys to the game

Indiana dropped its ninth consecutive Big Ten contest, falling to Northwestern 20-17.

The Hoosiers are 4-4 overall and 0-4 in the Big Ten.

Here are a few of the highlights:

Key stat: 37. Indiana’s top rusher Trea Burgess finished with 37 yards on eight carries. IU had 65 rushing yards. The Hoosiers will need more balance to make their passing attack more effective.

Key (non-touchdown) play: Northwestern’s Dan Persa was out with an injury in the fourth quarter. The Wildcats faced a third-and-8 from Indiana’s 40. Backup Evan Watkins completed a 13 yard pass to Jeremy Ebert to keep the drive alive. The Wildcats’ Stefan Demos capped the possession with a 45-yard field goal to give Northwestern a 20-10 lead with 6:51 remaining.


“We still have a chance to reach the goals we want to reach at season’s end. We’re never out of it.”

- Wide receiver Terrance Turner
