The Hoosiers jumped on top early, but trail at the half.

Indiana jumped on top of Michigan State early, but the Hoosiers trail 21-14 at the half in their first road game of the season.

It didn't take long for the Hoosiers to get on the board in East Lansing. Running back Tevin Coleman scored on a 64-yard run just a minute into the game to put the Hoosiers (3-2, 1-0) ahead 7-0 early.

Michigan State entered the game with the best rush defense in the nation. It had allowed only two rushing touchdowns before today.

Unfortunately for the Hoosiers, the rest of their drives haven't come nearly as easily. The Spartans responded with 14 straight points before Indiana evened the game at 14-14 on a touchdown pass from Tre Roberson to Cody Latimer.

Nate Sudfeld started the game for the Hoosiers, but Roberson led Indiana down the field for a touchdown in his only series. Sudfeld was 10-for-19 for 62 yards in the first half. Roberson was 3-for-3 for 35 yards and the touchdown.

Coleman has run for 75 yards on nine carries thus far.

The Indiana defense looked solid early, but got pushed around in the second quarter. Connor Cook has completed 16-of-23 passes for 152 yards and two scores.

Michigan State scored in the final minute of the first half to go back on top of the Hoosiers.
