Nate Sudfeld threw his Big Ten-leading 17th touchdown pass of the season.

Indiana leads Illinois 21-14 at halftime this afternoon at Memorial Stadium.

The Hoosiers have looked good offensively for the most part, the exception being a D'Angelo Roberts fumble in the second quarter. That turnover did not lead to any points, however, because Indiana's defense held the Fighting Illini on fourth down.

Indiana has 289 yards of total offense, 150 on the ground and 139 through the air. Sophomore quarterback Nate Sudfeld is 15-of-19 for 139 yards and a touchdown. Sudfeld has 17 touchdown passes this season, the most in the Big Ten.

Tevin Coleman has 118 rushing yards on 10 carries, 64 of them coming on a touchdown run early in the first quarter. Wide receiver Cody Latimer has eight catches for 86 yards and a touchdown.

The Indiana defense looked shaky early, but played much better in the second quarter. After giving up 208 total yards in the first quarter, the Hoosiers allowed only 80 in the second. Illinois has turned the ball over on downs twice.

Stay tuned to for more from Memorial Stadium this afternoon.
