Halftime: IU 13, Rutgers 10

Tevin Coleman has 122 yards at halftime and Indiana leads Rutgers 13-10. Here's a recap of the action.

Chalk that one up to wild first half finishes.

Rutgers scored a late first half touchdown to take a 7-point lead and it looked like IU was going to be down a touchdown at the break.

Instead the Hoosiers finished the half with a field goal and then a 67-yard touchdown run by Tevin Coleman and Indiana leads 13-10 at the half.

IU had to survive a 46-yard field goal attempt on the final play of the first half that hit the cross bar and bounced back.

Coleman was limited to 12 yards on seven carries in the first quarter. In the second quarter he had six carries for 110 yards. He has 13 carries for 122 yards and one score in the first half.

Indiana opened the game with an onsides kick and Griffin Oakes recovered his own kick. That drive resulted in a 48 yard field goal by Oakes to give the Hoosiers a 3-0 lead.

Rutgers tied the game at 3 with 3:12 to play in the first quarter on a 33-yard field goal.

The Scarlet Knights scored a touchdown late in the second quarter after a Rutgers punt hit junior Andre Booker in the back and was recovered by the home team. That gave them a short field at the IU 44 and six plays later they scored a 2 yard touchdown to make it 10-3.

On the next drive Coleman got it in gear. His first four carries on the drive resulted in 54 yards gained. Eventually Oakes would connect on a 36-yard field goal to make it 10-6.

IU got a great defensive stop on back-to-back plays at the IU 32 on the next drive. Rutgers had third-and-1 and fourth-and-1 and both times failed to convert. IU got the ball back with 29 seconds to play at is own 33.

On the first play, Coleman went the distance for a touchdown and it was 13-10.

Zander Diamont is 7-of-12 for 57 yards, his best performance of his young career.

Shane Wynn has six catches for 49 yards.
