Indiana State Football Losing Streak Up To 27 Games

Last updated on Friday, August 28, 2009

(TERRE HAUTE, IN) - Indiana State’s losing streak in football is up to 27 games as the Sycamores lost a 26-20 overtime heartbreaker to Quincy in the season opener.

ISU jumped out to a 17-0 lead at the end of the first quarter, but the Hawks chipped away, tying the game on a one-yard dive by quarterback Sam Donatucci with 43 seconds left in regulation.

Quincy missed the potential game-winning extra point after the try was pushed back due to a false start.

The Sycamores failed to score on their possession in overtime when they lost the ball on a bad shotgun snap to quarterback Chris Stutziem.

Donatucci scored the game-winner for Quincy on another one-yard run for the Hawks' only lead of the game.

Indiana State hits the road to face Louisville a week from Saturday.
