Recap: Bowling Green vs. Indiana

Bowling Green, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - James Knapke found Roger Lewis in the end zone for a two-yard touchdown with nine seconds left in regulation to lift the Bowling Green Falcons to a dramatic, 45-42 win over Indiana in a non- conference tussle at Doyt Perry Stadium.

Knapke threw for 395 yards and three scores while setting school records for attempts (73) and completions (46). Lewis finished with 149 yards and that deciding touchdown on 16 catches, while Travis Greene ran for 123 yards and a TD for the Falcons (2-1).

Tevin Coleman carried 24 times for 190 yards and three scores for the Hoosiers (1-1), who were coming off a bye. Nate Sudfeld completed 31-of-41 passes for 347 yards and a TD to go along with two rushing scores, while Shane Wynn paced the receiving corps with 139 yards on 10 catches.

Bowling Green opened the game with a 14-play possession but had to settle for a 28-yard Tyler Tate field goal after the drive stalled.

Indiana took a 7-3 lead on a one-yard touchdown plunge by Sudfeld, three plays after the Hoosiers recovered a fumble at the BGSU 33-yard line.

IU extended its lead to 14-3 on the first play of the second quarter, as Sudfeld connected with J-Shun Harris II for a 22-yard scoring strike.

The Falcons managed to cut the deficit to 14-12 at halftime thanks to three straight field goals by Tate (38, 45, 47) to close out the second quarter.

BGSU claimed a 19-14 lead at the 8:52 mark of the second quarter on a 40-yard touchdown pass from Knapke to Ronnie Moore.

But the Hoosiers would reclaim the lead less than a minute later as Coleman broke loose for a 28-yard touchdown run.

The Falcons went back on top, 26-21, on Greene's five-yard TD scamper with 3:47 remaining in the third quarter.

Once again, the Hoosiers had an answer less than a minute later as Coleman scored his second touchdown on a 46-yard burst to cap a three-play drive.

The back-and-forth battle continued into the fourth quarter, as BGSU regained the lead on a one-yard touchdown plunge by Fred Coppet, capping a 10-play, 77-yard drive.

Coleman found the end zone again on the fourth play of the ensuing series, this time on a 31-yard scamper that gave IU a 35-32 lead with 12:52 remaining.

Still, the Falcons would not go away, as Knapke found Ryan Burbrink for a 31- yard scoring strike to make it a 39-35 game with 5:24 to play.

Three minutes later, the Hoosiers went on top, 42-39, courtesy of a one-yard touchdown run by Sudfeld on fourth down.

However, they left enough time on the clock for Knapke to engineer a 12-play, 88-yard drive that ended with the two-yard TD pass to Lewis for the game- winner.

IU finished with 582 yards of total offense, while BGSU posted 571 yards.
