Missouri offense beats up Hoosiers 45-28



Yet it all changed after Ealy's remarkable catch and laboring touchdown trot to take control.

"The kid just sat on the pass," Indiana coach Kevin Wilson said. "A lot of teams will teach, just get your hands up. So we made an adjustment we probably shouldn't have done."

The interception ruined Indiana's comeback bid. The Hoosiers (2-2) had rallied from a 14-0 deficit to tie the score and were moving back into scoring position after allowing Franklin to score on a 1-yard TD run that gave Missouri a 21-14 lead.

Things were never the same.

Over the next 24 minutes, the Hoosiers managed only two first downs and punted four times — the same total they had in the previous three games, combined.

"It (the interception) did a lot for us, it really uplifted us and we were excited," Franklin said after going 32-of-47 with two interceptions.

Things weren't supposed to be this tough on a night Indiana's cool-looking chrome-striped helmets sparkled in the lights and the school honored the 1993 Independence Bowl team.

But the Hoosiers weren't themselves.

Sudfeld, who entered the game seventh nationally in passer efficiency, wound up 21 of 39 for 229 yards with one TD and three interceptions before giving way to Tre Roberson. Cody Latimer caught eight passes for 136 yards and a score, while Shane Wynn added five catches for 90 yards and a touchdown. Wynn is the fifth player on Indiana's current roster to top the 1,000-yard mark for his career.

Somehow, Missouri found a way to limit the Hoosiers, who had been averaging 50.0 points per game, to a season-low 28 — a number that would have been even lower if Roberson hadn't thrown a 68-yard TD pass and scored on a 3-yard run in the final 11½ minutes after Indiana had fallen into an insurmountable 38-14 hole.
