Penix leads No. 13 Indiana over No. 23 Michigan

Michael Penix Jr. passed for a career-high 342 yards and three touchdowns and Stevie Scott III rushed for two scores, lifting No. 13 Indiana to a 38-21 home win over No. 23 Michigan on Saturday in Bloomington, Ind.

The Hoosiers (3-0, 3-0 Big Ten) knocked off the Wolverines (1-2, 1-2) for the first time since Oct. 24, 1987, snapping a string of 24 straight losses in the series.

Michigan cut Indiana’s lead to 31-21 on a 21-yard TD pass from Joe Milton to Ronnie Bell with 13:43 left. But on the Wolverines’ subsequent drive, Milton was intercepted by Jaylin Williams, who returned it 36 yards down to Michigan’s 29-yard line. Eight plays later, Scott powered his way in for a 2-yard TD for the game’s final points.

Penix completed 30 of 50 passes to seven different receivers, with Ty Fryfogle posting a career-high 142 yards on seven catches with one touchdown. Scott rushed for 97 yards on 24 carries.

Milton passed for 344 yards with three touchdowns and two picks for Michigan, while Ronnie Bell had six catches for 149 yards and a score. It wasn’t enough for the Wolverines to avoid their second straight loss.

Penix passed for 254 yards and three TDs in the first half, allowing Indiana to jump to a 24-7 halftime lead. He led Indiana on an 11-play, 74-yard scoring drive on its first possession, capped by a 13-yard TD pass to Miles Marshall.

The Wolverines responded, with Milton finding Cornelius Johnson on a 37-yard pass to tie the score at 7-7 before Indiana closed the half with 17 unanswered points.

Penix diced through Michigan’s struggling secondary, finding Fryfogle on a 24-yard TD to put Indiana back up 14-7 with 1:41 left in the first quarter.

After a career-long , 52-yard field goal by Charles Campbell put Indiana up 17-7, the Hoosiers closed the half with a 12-play, 96-yard TD drive, capped by a 1-yard pass from Penix to Peyton Hendershot with 56 seconds left.
