Penn State overcame a sluggish first half to preserve their perfect record over the Hoosiers. After going up 7-0, Indiana scored on the next drive to tie it at 7-7, but Kevin Kelly kicked a field goal right before halftime to give the Lions a 10-7 lead at halftime. In the third quarter, Penn State scored two more touchdowns and a field goal to put it at 27-7. Penn State scored the final touchdown of the game in the 4th quarter. Penn State's defense held the Hoosiers to six first downs and forced an interception. The offense struggled at times, however, and turned the ball over three times.
