BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Stevie Scott III ran for three touchdowns and No. 12 Indiana had three interceptions, three sacks and a game-changing safety in a 27-11 victory over Maryland.

The Hoosiers improved to 5-1 with their fourth consecutive home win. Freshman Tim Baldwin Jr. ran for a season-high 106 yards for Indiana.

The safety midway through the third quarter gave the Hoosiers a 9-3 lead, and Indiana extended the margin to 17-3 on the ensuring possession.

Scott scored on a 1-yard plunge and backup quarterback Jack Tuttle completed a 2-point conversion to Peyton Hendershot. Tuttle replaced the injured Michael Penix Jr.
