Northwestern Wildcats Vs. Indiana Hoosiers: Wildcats Up 10-7 Early After Colter TD Pass

There might be a shootout brewing in the homecoming game between Northwestern and Indiana in Bloomington, IN. The teams have combined for 17 points over the first seven minutes of play, with Indiana grabbing an early lead with an opening drive that culminated in a 12-yard TD run by QB Tre Roberson.

On the ensuing kickoff Indiana K Mitch Ewald kicked the ball out of bounds, setting up great field position for the Wildcats at the 40 yard-line. They moved down the field for a field goal to answer the initial Hoosier score.On the next Wildcat possession, backup QB Kain Colter came in to give the defense a different look than starter Dan Persa. Colter proceeded to throw a 29-yard TD strike to Jeremy Ebert on his first pass of the game, giving the Wildcats the 10-7 lead. On the next Wildcat play, Persa re-entered the game and tossed a 45-yard pass to Drake Drummond.
