    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Dan Persa and Kain Colter combined to throw five touchdown passes Saturday, and Drake Dunsmore hauled in a school-record four TDs to lead Northwestern past Indiana 59-38.

    It was a record-setting day for the Wildcats (3-5, 1-4 Big Ten), who scored nine times before finally punting in the fourth quarter. Dunsmore also became Northwestern's all-time leader in yards receiving by a tight end, and the five TD passes tied the school's single-game team record. Northwestern finished with 616 total yards, just short of another school record (647).

    The Wildcats ended their five-game losing streak.

    Indiana (1-8, 0-5) lost its sixth straight and has now given up 40 or more points in four straight games for the first time since 2005.

    Tre Roberson completed 14 of 26 passes for 169 yards.
