There was a time with just under 6 minutes to play that Indiana football fans had to have been encouraged Saturday afternoon.
But after Michigan State scored two touchdowns to close the half fans aren't sure what to think right now.
Michigan State leads 28-17 at the break.
The Spartans have a 341-213 in total offense.
Indiana hung around early thanks to some big plays. Tevin Coleman had a 65 yard run that led to a Griffin Oakes field goal and Shane Wynn scored on a 75 yard reverse that cut the Michigan State lead to 14-10.
Then Tegray Scales came up with the play that the IU defense has lacked. He had an interception that gave the Hoosiers the ball at the Michigan State 39. Two plays later, Zander Diamont scored on a 9 yard QB keeper and IU led 17-14. Coleman set it up with a 30 yard run.
Coleman is over 100 yards again with 10 carries for 118 yards. That's nine consecutive games over 100 yards which is a school record and also leads the nation.
Michigan State came into the game allowing 82 yards per game rushing. Today, IU has 207 in the first half.
