TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - It's a happy homecoming for Rose-Hulman as the Fightin' Engineers defeated Bluffton 23-14 in front of a big crowd on Saturday.

The Rose-Hulman defense took a commanding lead late on a 45-yard pick six by Mitchell Kelley. The interception put the Engineers up 23-14 with just more than two minutes left on the clock.
