Indiana came back less than four minutes later with its first goal on Jacob Peterson's fifth score of the season.
In the 75th minute, OSU had a chance to take control on Nick Webb's penalty kick, but it was stopped by Hoosier goalie Chris Munroe. It was the second weekend in a row that a missed penalty kick hurt the Beavers.
Indiana tied the score on Lee Nguyen's goal in the 83rd minute. OSU defender Packy Deenihan spoiled the Hoosiers' two best scoring chances in the final minutes of overtime.
