The Truman State Bulldogs had their six-game win streak snapped by perennial Great Lakes Valley title contender Indianapolis in a 31-7 loss Saturday in Kirksville. The loss ends the Bulldogs hopes for a conference title. In a game between two teams who averaged a combined 500 yards rushing per game, the defense for both teams came up big, limiting the rushing attack to a combined 195 yards.
UINDY QB Jake Purichia picked apart the Bulldogs defense going 17-of-22 for the day with 289 yards passing. Malik Higgins caught six balls for 119 yards.
The game was played in under two-and-a-half hours. Truman will look to finish second in the GLVC with a road date at one-loss Missouri S&T next weekend in Rolla.
