NORMAL, Ill. -- Matt Brown threw for 172 yards and a touchdown to help Illinois State beat Indiana State 17-14 on Saturday.

Brown's 10-yard TD pass to James O'Shaughnessy gave the Redbirds a 17-6 lead early in the third quarter. Ashton Leggett scored on a 1-yard run in the first half for Illinois State (5-3, 3-2 Missouri Valley).

Indiana State (5-3, 3-2) drew within 17-14 on Ben Obaseki's 1-yard run and Ronnie Fouch's two-point conversion pass to Leonard Riston with 6:59 to play. The Sycamores recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, but couldn't cash in when Tann Frischle missed a 41-yard field goal attempt.

Fouch found Alex Jones for a 77-yard touchdown for the Sycamores' first score. Fouch was 10 for 25 for 175 yards and was sacked five times.
