|Wildcats Set Records in Rout at Indiana
|BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Dan Persa and Kain Colter combined to throw five touchdown passes Saturday, and Drake Dunsmore hauled in a school-record four TDs to lead Northwestern past Indiana 59-38.
It was a record-setting day for the Wildcats (3-5, 1-4 Big Ten), who scored nine times before finally punting in the fourth quarter. Dunsmore also became Northwestern's all-time leader in yards receiving by a tight end, and the five TD passes tied the school's single-game team record. Northwestern finished with 616 total yards, just short of another school record (674).
The Wildcats ended their five-game losing streak.
Indiana (1-8, 0-5) lost its sixth straight and has now given up 40 or more points in four straight games for the first time since 2005.
