Penn State vs. Indiana: Hoosiers Cut Lead To 16-10 With Touchdown

There's another three-and-out for the Indiana offense. It's been an awful half for that group as the Penn State defense has offered almost nothing. Great performance from the Lions today stopping the Hoosiers from capitalizing on the offense's struggles.

Penn State gets the ball back and Rob Bolden returns at quarterback again. Almost like clock work, an offense that had been rolling under Matthew McGloin bogs down and goes off the field quickly with a three-and-out. After McGloin's big performance last week and Bolden's 6-14 performance so far today, you have to wonder how much more time the staff is willing to give him in there. He's just not performing at the level neccesary to beat teams like Iowa, Northwestern and Illinois, let alone Ohio State, Nebraska and Wisconsin. McGloin has been no world-beater, but he's at least shown flashes of brilliance.

After getting the ball back, Indiana suddenly puts together a nice drive. The Hoosiers drive all the way into the Penn State redzone, then advance the ball to Penn State's 5-yardline. Dusty Kiel then finds Demarlo Belcher in the endzone for Indiana's first touchdown of the game, and just like that, the Hoosiers have life.

Indiana scoring summary: 14 plays, 77 yards, 3:44 time of possession. With 3:51 remaining, Penn State leads Indiana 16-10 in Bloomington.
