Indiana vs. Northwestern score: Wildcats lead 7-0 after first quarter

The undefeated Northwestern Wildcats lead the Indiana Hoosiers 7-0 after one quarter at Ryan Field in Evanston.

The Wildcats opened the scoring on a eight-yard scramble by quarterback Kain Colter with 5:52 remaining in the first quarter. The rush capped off a six-play, 80-yard drive that spanned just over two minutes.

Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald mixed things up early on, giving the starting quarterback nod to backup Trevor Siemian. Siemian went 4-7 for 37 yards in the opening quarter.

Meanwhile, Colter began the game at wide receiver, hauling in one pass for 16 yards. He also has taken snaps at quarterback, rushing three times for 39 yards and a score while throwing just one pass. That lone pass was picked off, which was actually the first interception of the season thrown by Wildcats quarterbacks.

Indiana threatened to score early, but Hoosiers kicker Mitch Ewald missed a 21-yard field goal attempt wide right.
