Hoosiers Outpaced in Second Half
Sept. 21, 2013
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Cody Latimer had eight catches for 139 yards and a score, while Shane Wynn caught five passes for 90 yards and another touchdown in a 45-28 loss to Missouri at Memorial Stadium on Saturday evening.
It was Latimer's second straight week going over 100 yards. He is the first Hoosier since James Hardy in 2007 to record back-to-back 100-yard games.
Missouri's James Franklin threw for 343 yards and two touchdowns, and defensive end Kony Ealy returned an interception 49 yards for a score.
The Tigers (3-0) won in Bloomington for the first time since 1953 and ended an eight-game winless streak in this series, though the teams hadn't played since 1992.
Indiana (2-2) was led by Nate Sudfeld, who threw for 229 yards and one TD. The Hoosiers now have a bye week before hosting Penn State on Oct. 5.
Franklin broke a 14-14 tie with his 1-yard TD run. Then 275-pound Ealy leapt up, picked off Sudfeld and scored to make it 28-14.
Fifth-year senior safety Greg Heban recorded a pair of interceptions in the first quarter, his first two of the season and the seventh and eighth of his career. Heban was the last Hoosier to pick off a pair of passes in a single game, doing so against Virginia on Sept. 10, 2011. He also finished with a game-high eight tackles.
Each team had a receiver top the 100-yard mark. And during two quarters in which the teams combined for 627 yards, 93 plays, six touchdowns and five turnovers, the two biggest turned out to be a successful fake field goal that eventually led to a Missouri touchdown and Ealy's interception and touchdown trot.
Missouri, which led 28-14 at the half thanks to Ealy, made it 31-14 on Andrew Baggett's 31-yard field goal late in the third quarter. Franklin then hooked up with L'Damian Washington on a 14-yard TD pass early in the fourth to seal it.
Coach Gary Pinkel won his 93rd game at Missouri, tying Dan Devine for second on the school's all-time victory list.
Indiana received a 68-yard scoring pass from Wynn with 11:24 left in the fourth and Tre Roberson scored on a short run with 10 seconds to go.
