Indiana State collapses in second half of loss


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) — At halftime, it looked like a fresh ball game. Indiana State and Missouri State had battled to a 24-24 stalemate after two quarters. But a second half collapse by the Sycamores had them blown out on homecoming, 45-24.

A myriad of turnovers and ill-timed mistakes spelled disaster for ISU as the Bears offense dominated the game on the ground. Sophomore quarterback Isaac Harker wavered, throwing two interceptions on top of the Sycamores’ three fumbles.

After the game, the Sycamores were visibly disappointed. Coach Mike Sanford lamented the lows of the game, while Harker took blame for a poor performance. Senior Rob Tonyan Jr. said the loss was a “reality check” for the team.
