BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Richard Lagow and Devine Redding kept the Indiana offense humming Saturday.The Hoosiers defense took care of everything else.On a day Lagow threw for 266 yards and three touchdowns and Redding extended his streak of consecutive 100-yard games to five, Indiana forced three turnovers, pitched its first first-half shutout in four years and survived a frantic fourth-quarter flurry for a 30-20 victory over Ball State.I thought they were pretty good till we wore down late and got the blocked punt, Indiana coach Kevin Wilson said about the defense. Weve got to play better, but we played good football today.Its been a dramatic change for a defense that has struggled mightily for most of the last quarter-century.But as Ball State (1-1) discovered, Indiana suddenly looks like its found a solution.The Hoosiers stuffed the Cardinals ground game for three quarters and held quarterback Riley Neal to 15 of 30 for 231 yards with one touchdown and one interception. First-year coach Mike Neu, a former Ball State quarterback, was impressed with what he saw from Indiana, which already has forced six turnovers in eight quarters after producing only 22 takeaways in 13 games last season.Weve got to make sure we emphasize ball security in practice because we cant have fumbles. We cant have interceptions, Neu said. We have three turnovers and they have none, I dont care what team you face, thats a tough recipe to have success.With the defense holding the Cardinals in check, Lagow & Co. made it look easy.After converting an early fumble recovery into a field goal, Lagow found Nick Westbrook on a 43-yard TD pass to make it 10-0. Lagow put it away with a 10-yard TD pass to Luke Timian in the second quarter and a 79-yard TD pass to Westbrook on the second play of the third quarter.Redding finished with 26 carries for 110 yards. Westbrook had three catches for 133 yards.TAKEAWAYSBall State: The Cardinals have a long way to go to compete with college footballs big boys. After rushing for 325 yards against Georgia State, Ball State managed just 371 yards in total offense and fumbled away its first scoring chance -- at Indianas 3-yard line.Indiana: The Hoosiers have been impressive in their first two games, winning both in typical Big Ten fashion -- putting away Florida International late in the Miami heat and never giving the Cardinals a chance Saturday.UP NEXTBall State: The Cardinals host Eastern Kentucky, an FCS playoff contender, next weekend and will need their defense to play much stouter against a team that topped the 40-point mark five times last season.Indiana: The Hoosiers get an extra week to fix the kinks before hosting Wake Forest. Indiana needs to build momentum with a daunting start to Big Ten play looming. They host No. 12 Michigan State on Oct. 1 and visit No. 4 Ohio State on Oct. 8.INJURY REPORT:Ball State: Safety Mitch Larsen, cornerback Marc Walton and linebacker Damon Singleton all left the game with injuries but Neu did not have a diagnosis for any of his players.Indiana: Receiver Simmie Cobbs Jr. left with an injured left ankle on the Hoosiers first offensive play, his first -- and perhaps last -- of the season. Wilson said he may need surgery and could miss the rest of the season. All-American right guard Dan Feeney left in the first half with a concussion and did not return.THE STREAK: Ball States three-game winning streak in the series ended Saturday. First-year Cardinals coach Mike Neu expected the Hoosiers to use it as motivation. Indianas players got the message. It was brought up, Lagow said.LAST WORD: You get one chance on Saturday to put your A game on the field. We didnt do that this week. Last week was awesome, we enjoyed it, it was a lot of fun. But every weeks a new week, its a new challenge, Neu said.----AP College Football Website: Ales Hemsky Jersey . LOUIS -- St. Mats Naslund Jersey . Luis Suarezs double powered Liverpool to a 4-0 victory over Fulham, and Southampton easily overcame Hull 4-1 to continue the south coast clubs impressive start to the season. Liverpool and Southampton sent Chelsea down to fourth place as the west London club was held to 2-2 at home. . Halifax beat the Saint John Sea Dogs 7-5 on the strength of two goals apiece from Nikolaj Ehlers, Matt Murphy and Brent Andrews. Jonathan Drouin also scored and had three assists while Zachary Fucale made 17 saves for the Mooseheads (16-8-0), who led 6-1 after two periods. Jacob de la Rose Jersey . The players spoke Jan. 13 during a Major League Baseball Players Association conference call after Rodriguez sued the union and Major League Baseball to overturn an arbitrators decision suspending him for the 2014 season and post-season. Dickie Moore Jersey . - Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie never doubted he would bring back coach Dennis Allen for a third year despite back-to-back 4-12 records.Roberto Martinez says he is pleased with the manner in which Everton went about earning a point in their 1-1 draw at home to Southampton. Everton took the lead in Saturdays Premier League clash at Goodison Park in the 68th minute through Ramiro Funes Mori, before being pegged back by Sadio Mane eight minutes later.Despite that, Martinez was pleased with how his much-changed side secured a draw against a dominant Southampton. Its a good point in the way we had to fight very hard to cope with a demanding fixture, Martinez told Sky Sports. Obviously the amount of players missing stretched the squad like we havent been stretched before, and we had two young players (Tom Davies and Callum Connolly) making their debuts, and I thought they coped with the environment really well.When you get in the lead, its always a bit of a disappointment [to draw], and you felt when we took the lead, we couldve held onto it. But I think the point was a well-fought one, we had to work very hard for it and the squad reacted when it was needed. Paul Merson believes this week could determine the future of Roberto Martinez as Everton manager Martinez made six changes from the side that drew 0-0 at Crystal Palace in midweek, and that showed in Evertons slightly unconvincing performance at Goodison.dddddddddddd.Sometimes you have to dig in and work hard and that came out very clearly, said Martinez. At the beginning, we looked a little bit disjointed after so many changes from the last game, but we had focus and desire to get ourselves in front, we scored the goal and I can sense the disappointment in the side because we dropped two points.The result leaves Everton in the bottom half of the Premier League table, and Martinez admitted just four wins at home all season has not been good enough from his side. Everton now face a huge week with the Merseyside derby on Wednesday followed by their FA Cup semi-final with Manchester United on Saturday.We havent been collecting the wins weve expected to at home and thats always difficult, said Martinez. We have a really important week ahead, and we know that when we need our fans theyre behind us and make a real difference, and Im sure well be able to pay them back.
