BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - In front of 9,231 fans on a picturesque Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium, the Cream earned a 24-14 victory over the Crimson in Indiana's annual Spring Game. Shane Wynn, Flo Hardin, Collin Rahrig and Bobby Richardson captained the victorious team.
Wynn finished the game with five receptions for 141 yards and one touchdown. Cream quarterback Tre Roberson threw for 176 yards with a 16-yard strike to Wynn and a 65-yard TD run.
Cream defensive tackle Nate Hoff paced all defenders with seven tackles, including one sack and 1.5 tackles for loss. Rashard Fant was right behind him with six stops, one TFL, one interception and one pass breakup.
After an Aaron Del Grosso 41-yard field goal opened the scoring, Roberson reached the end zone first with his long scamper to put the Cream ahead 10-0 at the end of the first.
The Crimson responded in the second as Myles Graham pounded his way into the end zone from two yards out, the first of his two touchdowns.
With the score still 10-7, Wynn and Roberson hooked up with 2:36 remaining in the third quarter to bolster the Cream lead to 10. Davis then opened the fourth quarter scoring with his TD and the Cream held an insurmountable 24-7 advantage.
Nate Sudfeld found Graham from 12 yards out for the final touchdown of the afternoon, but it was not enough as the Cream earned a 10-point triumph.
