Southern Illinois Salukis (1-6)


Keys, Indiana State, hold off Southern Illinois 24-21

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) Ja'Quan Keys rushed for 156 yards and two touchdowns and Indiana State held off Southern Illinois for a 24-21 win on Saturday.

Keys had two short touchdowns to cap a pair of 10-play drives that put the Sycamores (3-4, 1-4 Missouri Valley Conference) up 14-7 at the half. A nine-play drive to open the second half, which ended with a Titus McCoy 7-yard run, pushed the lead to 21-7 before Jerry Nunez capped a 10-play drive with a 20-yard field goal and made it 24-7 entering the fourth quarter.

Matt DeSomer, who opened the scoring with a short touchdown run, had a touchdown pass midway through the fourth quarter, and Jonathan Mixon scored on a 12-yard run with 2:23 left. But Keys recovered an on-side kick and the Salukis (1-6, 0-4) only had 30 seconds left when they got the ball back with 32 seconds to play.
