Indiana defeats Illinois 52-35
INDIANA 52, ILLINOIS 35

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Cody Latimer set career highs with 11
catches and 189 yards receiving and hauled in three touchdowns
as Indiana defeated Illinois 52-35 on Saturday.

The Hoosiers (4-5, 2-3 Big Ten) snapped a three-game skid, while
Illinois (3-6, 0-5) extended its school-record conference losing
streak to 19 games.

Tevin Coleman rushed 15 times for a career-high 215 yards, the
most by a Hoosier in the last 10 seasons. The teams engaged in a
back-and-forth shootout until Coleman's 75-yard touchdown run
edged Indiana ahead 42-35 with 12:41 remaining. Indiana burned
the Illini's run defense for 371 yards and gained a season-high
650 yards overall.

Nathan Scheelhaase completed 38 of 57 passes for 450 yards and
two touchdowns to lead Illinois. He added 45 yards and a score
on the ground. Receiver Steve Hull exploded for 224 yards and
two touchdowns on nine receptions.

The Illini were never the same after Coleman's crowd-thrilling
burst. On their ensuing possession, linebacker Steven Funderburk
came unblocked on a third-and-10 blitz to force an incompletion.
Then Illinois coach Tim Beckman dialed up a fake punt that
flopped on fourth down. Punter Justin DuVernois threw low and
well short of the marker.

Two plays later, Stephen Houston rushed in from the 2-yard line
to make it 49-35. Prior to that, neither side led by more than
seven. Houston finished with 17 carries for 150 yards and two
TDs.

Latimer surpassed his previous career highs of nine catches and
139 yards with a 50-yard TD reception from Nate Sudfeld on
Indiana's fourth drive of the second half. The play also tied
his career high of three touchdown catches and gave the Hoosiers
a 35-28 lead.

The teams traded touchdowns on four consecutive possessions in
the first quarter before defense prevailed in the second.
Illinois kicker Taylor Zalewski was wide right on a 41-yard
field goal try with 1:20 left in the half.

Each team scored 14 in the third quarter. Hull got wide open on
Illinois' first drive of the second half for a 54-yard touchdown
reception that tied the game at 21. Sudfeld, who finished
20-of-27 for 267 yards and three TD passes, twice hooked up with
Latimer for scores in the period. Scheelhaase scrambled in from
14 yards out to briefly give Illinois its only lead of the day,
28-21.

Illinois right tackle Corey Lewis, who rushed for 27 touchdowns
as a high school senior, tied the game at 35 when he fell on
Ferguson's fumble in the end zone for his first college score.

Illinois entered the game with the 70th-ranked offense,
averaging 402 yards. By the break, the Illini had gained 288.
They finished with 612 yards, but a struggling defense cost them
a chance to break through for their first Big Ten victory since
Oct. 8, 2011, which came at Indiana.

Mitch Ewald kicked a 22-yard field goal with 5:25 remaining to
give the Hoosiers a 17-point lead, their largest in over a
month. Ewald is 8-for-8 this season.

Indiana might have a tough time regrouping before traveling to
Wisconsin next week with several Hoosiers leaving the game
because of injury. Coleman was helped off midway through the
fourth quarter. Starting defensive backs Tim Bennett, Mark
Murphy and Greg Heban also missed time.
