Wildcats Lead 59-31 Early In The Fourth Quarter

Heading into this matchup with Indiana, Northwestern hadn't scored more than 35 points in a game since a 42-21 victory over Eastern Illinois in the second week of the season. After a handful of uninspiring offensive performances, the Wildcats have found their offensive rhythm against Indiana, as they lead 59-31 early in the fourth quarter.

In its first three drives of the second half, Northwestern found the endzone every time. Backup QB Kain Colter threw his second touchdown of the game on the first drive of the half, while Jacob Schmidt added two scores on the ground.

While the defense has no answer for Northwestern, the Hoosiers offense has been able to continue their success. Stephen Houston has been tough to stop on the ground, as the sophomore running back has rushed for over 130 yards and added a touchdown in the third quarter. Mitch Ewald converted a 38-yard field goal for the Hoosiers on their second drive of the half.
