Recap: Indiana vs. Ball State

Bloomington, IN (Sports Network) - Steven Schott's 42-yard field goal as time expired was just what the Ball State Cardinals needed as they slipped by Indiana, 41-39, in non-conference play at Memorial Stadium.

Schott made both of his field goals on the night for the Cardinals (2-1) as they rebounded from their 52-27 loss to nationally-ranked Clemson last week. Quarterback Keith Wenning converted 26-of-44 passing for 222 yards and three touchdowns for BSU, while Jahwan Edwards added 78 yards and a score on 21 rushing attempts for the visitors.

The Hoosiers (2-1) were paced by quarterbacks Cameron Coffman and Nate Sudfeld who combined to hit 37-of-55 for 423 yards and four touchdowns, the former weathering three sacks and the latter one takedown behind the line of scrimmage. Cody Latimer reeled in four passes for 115 yards and two scores and running back Stephen Houston posted a game-high 102 yards and a TD on 12 carries in the losing cause.

Indiana took the opening kickoff 46 yards on eight plays but had to settle for a 46-yard field goal by Mitch Ewald.

The Cardinals assumed a 14-3 advantage later in the frame as Wenning tossed touchdown passes to Zane Fakes and Willie Snead of two and 34 yards, respectively.

Houston's 13-yard TD run at the 4:20 mark of the first period cut the deficit to 14-10 and then early in the second Indiana recaptured the lead when Coffman linked up with Kofi Hughes on a nine-yard scoring strike to make the score 17-14.

Ball State again recorded back-to-back scores as Schott knocked through a 51- yard field goal, followed by a one-yard TD run by Edwards to give the visitors a 24-17 edge.

Indiana's ensuing possession consumed four and a half minutes off the clock and culminated with a three-yard TD pass from Coffman to Latimer. A successful two-point conversion by Houston allowed the Hoosiers to slip ahead by a point at the break, 25-24.

Wenning had a hand in both of the next two touchdowns for the Cardinals as he collected a 12-yard TD pass himself from Jamill Smith and then tossed an 11- yard TD to Fakes to go ahead by a score of 38-25.

Scoring two touchdowns of their own in the final minutes of regulation, the Hoosiers first closed the gap with a 70-yard TD pass from Sudfeld to Latimer at the 4:07 mark, followed by a two-yard TD catch by Shane Wynn from Sudfeld with just 49 seconds remaining to take the lead at 39-38.

But the Cardinals didn't show any desperation as they moved the ball 44 yards on seven plays, setting up Schott for the game-winner.

Indiana produced 558 yards of total offense, compared to 440 yards for the Cardinals, but the Hoosiers also hurt themselves with 12 penalties amounting to 127 yards.
