COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Indiana found itself in an early 21-3 hole, and at that point Hoosiers coach Kevin Wilson figured his team's best chance to beat Maryland was in a shootout.
"I told the offense we've got to score 100," Wilson recalled afterward.
Turns out nearly half that total was plenty enough, as Nate Sudfeld threw for 385 yards and four touchdowns Saturday to rally Indiana to 47-28 victory, its first this season in the Big Ten.
Devine Redding ran for 130 yards to help the Hoosiers (5-6, 1-6) end a six-game losing streak. Redding got the majority of playing time because starter Jordan Howard left after three carries because of "a slight knee deal," according to Wilson.
Maryland (2-9, 0-7) lost its eighth in row despite getting 250 yards rushing from Brandon Ross, the fourth-most in school history. Ross had touchdown runs of 79, 22 and 75 yards.
Terrapins quarterback Perry Hills (mononucleosis) was a late scratch, and his replacement, Caleb Rowe, missed the second half because of a concussion. Seldom-used Shane Cockerille played the final 30 minutes.
