Indiana beat FCS ISU (Missouri Valley) 27-17 at home. ISU was 6-5 in '11, but picked 23d in FCS for '12. ISU back gained 103 yds, team gained 387 overall, there was no scoring in the 4th even though ISU was inside Indiana 50 3 times.

Improved UMass offense could have success, but will it be improved?
