NORMAL, Ill. (AP) -- Rafael Rice rushed for 182 yards to lead Illinois State to a 69-17 victory over Indiana State on Saturday.

Rice ran five yards to score a touchdown in the third period to add to ten touchdowns for Illinois State (3-4, 1-2 Gateway Football Conference). The team rushed for 438 yards and passed for 154 yards to earn 33 first downs. A missed extra point after the last touchdown kept the Redbirds from 70.

The win breaks a three-game losing streak for the Redbirds. Geno Blow and Cortes Rice both rushed for more than 100 yards.

Indiana State (0-7, 0-3 Gateway Football Conference) scored a field goal in the first minutes of the game -- the first lead of the season for the Sycamores. Indiana State went on to score a pair of touchdowns in the second period, but remained scoreless for the second half of the game.

Bryan McCulley ran for seven yards to score Indiana State's first touchdown. Charles Dowdell completed a 29-yard pass to Jeramie Gray for the second.
