The two teams traded touchdowns early. Inside linebacker Isaiah Davis would be ejected for targeting midway through the first. Down 14-7 Javon Leak would find a leak in the defense for a 60+ yard scamper and a touchdown. The Hoosiers would tack on a field goal but then Maryland would come storming back with Pigrome connecting with Dante Demus twice for 55 yards and a TD on the next drive.
They would swap scores but Indiana would take a 10 point lead. At 31-21 with the Terps backed up on third and 17 Pigrome would again find Demus over the middle for a big first down. On the following play it would be huge play to Mabry to put Maryland on the goal line. The ensuing kickoff saw a fumble created bounce cack to the three yard line of the Hoosiers. Indiana(5-2) would put up a nice drive but it would stall with them punting back to MD(3-4). Rinse repeat for two more drives and an absolute dagger of a fumble and turnover by Javon Leak gave the ball to Indiana in the red zone. The terms would hold them to a field goal and have one more opportunity. The drive started well but an overthrow by Pigrome with intercepted along with their chance to get a W.
Maryland @ (20)Minnesota
Indiana @ Nebraska
