Ever since sophomore quarterback Nate Sudfeld entered the game, the Hoosiers have outscored Navy 14-10.

Unfortunately for Indiana, Navy jumped out to a 14-0 lead to start the game after IU sophomore quarterback Tre Roberson started the game without a first down in his first two series.

The Midshipmen lead the Hoosiers 24-14 at the half after gashing the Hoosiers on the ground and surprising them through the air.

Navy has 255 yards on the ground, averaging over seven yards a carry. Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds has 50 yards on the ground while managing the triple option.

On only three pass attempts, Reynolds has garnered 71 yards through the air.

Sudfeld came into the game and immediately provided a spark for the dormant Hoosier offense. The sophomore has completed 12 of 16 passes for 160 yards and two touchdowns, but through a costly interception.

On his first series of the game, IU had a chance to cut into the 14-0 Navy lead when they drove deep into Navy territory.

Sudfeld then threw an interception at the Navy goal line, killing the drive.

IU caught a break when Navy drove down the field in the final 90 seconds of the half, only to have their kicker miss a 32-yard field goal, cementing the 24-14 halftime score.
