FINAL: Indiana Hoosiers fall to Missouri, 45-28


The Indiana Hoosiers suffered another loss, this time at the hands of Missouri. The Tigers dominated the Hoosiers in a 45-28 rout.

IU (2-2) put in a poor effort on offense, something they have rarely done all season. The offensive line was porous, giving quarterback Nate Sudfeld little time to get a clean pass off.

Sudfeld was uncharacteristically inaccurate Saturday night, completing just 53-percent of his passes. He also threw three interceptions. He managed 229 yards passing and a touchdown.

Sudfeld was eventually replaced by Tre Roberson. Roberson wasn’t much better, completing 8-of-14 passes for 148 yards and a touchdown. He also ran in a touchdown in the final seconds of the game.

Cody Latimer was the favorite target for IU quarterbacks. Latimer finished with eight catches for 136 yards and a touchdown.

The poor line play also led to a bad day for the running backs. IU only managed 98 yards on the ground. Tevin Coleman got the bulk of the carries and 54 rushing yards and a touchdown.

Defensively, the Hoosiers were not much better, but did play well enough for IU to win. The Hoosiers forced three turnovers, but gave up 623 yards. IU allowed Missouri to convert just 8-of-16 third down attempts.

The Hoosiers will host Penn State next week.
