Linebacker Aaron Hill recovered a fumble by Indiana's Tevin Coleman with 25 seconds remaining and surging Minnesota held on to beat Indiana 42-39 on Saturday.
    
Minnesota (7-2, 3-2 Big Ten) led 35-13 midway through the third quarter before the Hoosiers stormed back for a 39-35 lead on Nate Sudfeld's 30-yard touchdown pass to Cody Latimer with 5:33 remaining. But Philip Nelson found Maxx Williams for a 50-yard scoring pass on Minnesota's ensuing possession.
    
Indiana (3-5, 1-3) then drove to the Gophers' 9-yard line before Sudfeld threw a lateral on second-and-goal that Coleman juggled. Hill scooped up the bouncing football to secure Minnesota's third straight victory under acting coach Tracy Claeys.
    
Nelson went 16 of 23 for 298 yards and four touchdowns. David Cobb rushed 29 times for 188 yards and a score for Minnesota. Coleman ran 14 times for 108 yards and a touchdown for Indiana before his fateful mistake.
