Nate Sudfeld came off Indiana's bench to throw for two touchdowns, and the Hoosiers defense had seven sacks and a pair of key turnovers in a 31-17 win at Illinois on Saturday. The win ended a five-game losing streak for the Hoosiers (3-5, 1-3 Big Ten) that included tight losses to Ohio State, Navy and Michigan State. It also ended an 11-game Big Ten drought that dated to 2010. Sudfeld took over after starting quarterback Cameron Coffman was benched following a first-quarter interception. Sudfeld had 107 yards on 10-of-15 passing. His second scoring pass, a 17-yarder to Shane Wynn midway through the fourth quarter, put the Hoosiers up 31-17 and finished Illinois. The Illini (2-6, 0-4) were led by Donovonn Young's career-high 124 rushing yards. Illinois has lost five in a row.
