Harker leads Indiana St. past Southeast Missouri St. 27-24
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) Issac Harker threw three touchdowns, the last one to Miles Thompson with 10 seconds to go, to lift Indiana State to a 27-24 comeback over Southeast Missouri State on Saturday night.
Cameron Sanders put the Redhawks on top 24-13 with 8:58 remaining.
Harker led a seven-play, 68-yard drive that ended when he hit Robert Tonyan Jr., with a 5-yard score to cut the deficit to 24-19. The two-point conversion failed.
Indiana State (2-1) forced a three-and-out, and Harker orchestrated an 11-play, 81-yard drive, ending with the score to Thompson.
During the drive, on fourth-and-eight at their own 41, Harker found Tonyan for nine yards. Harker went 5 for 8 for 53 yards on the scoring drive, which was aided by a 15-yard penalty for roughing the passer by the Redhawks' John Popovich.
Jesse Hosket was 16 for 25 for 214 yards for Southeast Missouri State (0-3).
