The Hoosiers jumped out to an early 14-3 lead after a 1-yard touchdown run by quarterback Nate Sudfeld and a 22-yard touchdown pass from Sudfeld to freshman receiver J'Shun Harris. But Bowling Green responded to close the gap late in the half.
Bowling Green (1-1) put together four good drives in the half, but came away with just field goals on all four. The Falcons scored the final nine points of the half.
Statistically, it was a great half for Sudfeld, who struggled in Indiana's opener against Indiana State two weeks ago. Sudfeld was 16-of-20 for 175 yards and a touchdown in the first half with no interceptions.
Bowling Green has done a good job stopping the run to this point, holding star running back Tevin Coleman to just 31 yards on 12 carries. Coleman ran for 247 yards and two touchdowns against Indiana State.
