TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (KWWL) -

With fourth string quarterback Colton Howell making an emergency start, the UNI Panthers notched one of their most lopsided wins of the year taking down Indiana State 39-6.

Howell was called in to action to replace Eli Dunne who hadn't passed concussion protocols earlier in the week. Howell passed for 112 yards and ran for 45. Michael Malloy scored three rushing touchdowns while the Panthers called on receiver Marcus Weymiller to run plays out of the wildcat. The new strategy worked as Weymiller rushed for 171 yards in the game.

Howell also got help from freshman Jalen Rima who set a Panther record with a 94 yard punt return for a touchdown.

UNI (4-5 overall, 3-3 Missouri Valley Conference) travels to 11th ranked Western Illinois next Saturday.
