IU Drops High-Scoring Battle to Michigan
Oct. 19, 2013
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Indiana's Tre Roberson accounted for a career-high 338 yards and four touchdowns (three passing; one rushing) but it was not enough as the Hoosiers lost at Michigan, 63-47, on Saturday afternoon.
IU's (3-4, 1-2 Big Ten) 47 points are the most scored and 572 yards are the most gained against the Wolverines (6-1, 2-1 Big Ten) in the 62 all-time meetings.
The Hoosiers opened the scoring at the 10:28 mark of the first quarter when Nate Sudfeld found Cody Latimer for a 59-yard touchdown pass to put the Hoosiers ahead, 7-0. The catch was the 100th career reception for Latimer, joining current Hoosiers Ted Bolser, Kofi Hughes and Shane Wynn with 100 receptions and 1,000 career receiving yards.
Michigan scored the next 21 points to take a 21-7 lead in the second quarter before Roberson found Shane Wynn for a 33-yard touchdown reception with just less than six minutes left in the first half.
After Michigan scored another touchdown, the Hoosiers worked down the field with the clock winding down and got in position for Mitch Ewald to connect on a 50-yard field goal to cut the Michigan lead to 28-17 going into the locker room.
The long field goal was the first from over 50 yards in Ewald's career and the 18th in school history. The last time the Hoosiers connected on a field goal from 50 yards or longer was Nov. 23, 2002, when Bryan Robertson made a 50-yarder as well. Ewald would later become the Hoosiers all-time field goals leader with a 20-yard field goal.
The third quarter saw Tevin Coleman (2-yard rush), Shane Wynn (6-yard catch) and Kofi Hughes (67-yard catch) all find the end zone for the Hoosiers, but Michigan took a 49-40 lead into the fourth quarter.
In the fourth, Roberson's 15-yard rushing touchdown finished the IU scoring for the day.
Hughes ended with six catches for 138 yards and one touchdown, while Latimer had five catches for 96 yards and a TD. Coleman led the rushing attack with 78 yards on 11 rushes and one score.
