Indiana finds way to finally beat Penn St. 44-24

Updated:
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -

Nate Sudfeld threw two touchdown passes and Tre Roberson ran for two more scores Saturday, leading Indiana to its first win ever against Penn State 44-24.

The Hoosiers (3-2, 1-0 Big Ten) capped their five-game home stand by ending a 16-game losing streak to the Nittany Lions (3-2, 0-1).

It looked like Penn State might keep the streak alive after taking its first lead of the game on a 26-yard TD pass from Christian Hackenberg to Allen Robinson early in the third quarter.

But Indiana answered with a scoring flurry.

Tevin Coleman scored on a 44-yard run and Roberson scored on a 2-point conversion run. Roberson then added a 2-yard TD run early in the fourth and after Penn State failed on fourth-and-2 from its own 33, Kofi Hughes made a catch for a 36-yard TD and a 35-17 lead. Roberson followed with a 9-yard TD run to seal it.
