TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) — In their final home game of the season, the Indiana State football team fell flat against a tough Northern Iowa team, which held the Sycamores to just 201 yards of total offense. ISU was unable to get into the endzone in the game, losing 39-6 in front of the home crowd.
Quarterback Isaac Harker struggled throughout most of the game, generating just 74 yards passing. He was let down by the offensive line, as the Panthers came up with four sacks in the game.
Backup quarterback Aaron Young came in to relieve Harker in the fourth quarter.
The special teams were also culpable for Indiana State. In the first quarter, UNI’s Jalen Rima ripped off a 94-yard punt return for a touchdown. The Sycamores never recovered.
After the game, Coach Mike Sanford said this isn’t the team he’s used to.
