SIU and Illinois State traded touchdowns and field goals Saturday,
but one jump ball changed the momentum of the game.
Cornerback Korey Lindsey beat Illinois State wide receiver Eyad Salem
on a pass that could have given the Redbirds a 29-26 lead early in
the fourth quarter. The interception led the No. 6 Salukis (4-1, 3-0
MVFC) to a 43-23 victory at McAndrew Stadium Saturday.
"I just kind of glanced over and had seen that the quarterback put a
lot of air under it, so I just tried to go over and make a play,"
Lindsey said about the interception. "We were needing a stop for the
defense. Illinois State had the momentum at the time, so we were just
trying to swing things back on our side."
