Hoosiers run conference win streak to two

Cameron Coffman threw three touchdown passes to Cody Latimer, including a go-ahead 30-yard score with 10:58 left, as the host Hoosiers claimed their second straight Big Ten victory by topping the Hawkeyes.

Coffman finished 21-for-32 for 315 yards. Latimer and Kofi Hughes combined for 13 catches and 223 yards for Indiana (4-5, 2-3 Big Ten), which snapped an 11-game losing streak in league play last week in Illinois.

James Vandenberg completed 21 of 34 passes for 251 yards and a first-quarter TD for Iowa (4-5, 2-3). Damon Bullock had 83 yards on the ground and his touchdown with 12:17 remaining gave the Hawkeyes a short-lived 21-17 lead.

Seconds after Vandenberg hit Kevonte Martin-Manley for a 24-yard score midway through the first quarter, Hoosiers backup Nate Sudfeld was intercepted by linebacker Christian Kirksey, who took it back 18 yards to give Iowa a quick 14-0 lead.

Coffman and Latimer hooked up for their first TD with just 47 seconds left in the first half to make it 14-10 and then connected on a 6-yard score midway through the third to give Indiana its first lead, 17-14. Their 30-yard scoring connection came just four plays after Bullock had put the Hawkeyes in front.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Martin-Manley had seven catches and 131 yards. … The Hoosiers extended their school record by scoring at least 24 points for the 10th straight game. … Coffman was benched in favor of Sudfeld last week against the Illini.
