Indiana has two wins on the season, but none of them have come in the Big Ten Conference.

The Hoosiers hope a night game in Bloomington helps them against the mighty Buckeyes.

Ohio State

Urban Meyer’s team showed off their explosive offense last weekend. Braxton Miller fits perfectly into Meyer’s offensive scheme. Miller is a dual-threat quarterback who has game breaking ability.

He may well be the best running quarterback in the nation. Miller already has 763 rushing yards this season. He has run for eight touchdowns and passed for nine.

Jordan Hall is listed as questionable for this one. If he can’t go, it will be Carlos Hyde starting in the backfield. Ohio State is tenth in the nation in rushing yards, but they are 108th in the nation in passing offense.

The Buckeyes defense has actually been a bit disappointing so far this year. Ohio State has a dominating defensive front, but the rest of the defense has been mediocre. John Simon has a tremendous motor on the front line, and Johnathan Hankins is getting rave reviews from the pro scouts.

Hankins is questionable for this game due to a leg injury.

Bradley Roby had two picks in last week’s game, and he is the best player in this secondary.


Indiana was a bottom-feeder in the Big Ten last season. They haven’t gotten any wins in the conference this year, but they have shown improvement already. Last weekend, the Hoosiers had a 27-17 fourth quarter lead over Michigan State before losing 31-27. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

Cameron Coffman threw for 282 yards and three touchdowns last week. Coffman has been great since taking over for the injured Tre Roberson. Stephen Houston is averaging 5.2 yards per game at running back.

Indiana’s offense is putting up 469 yards of total offense per game, so this is a bright spot for the Hoosiers this season.

The Indiana defense has been very bad the last few years, and they still have quite a bit of room for improvement.

Still, the unit has gotten better in the past year. They are allowing 27.8 points per game so far this year, which is a decent improvement from a year ago. The issue is still the front seven, which just isn’t very good against the run.

They’ll get a major test this week as you know the Buckeyes will want to run the ball early and often.

The Buckeyes are clearly the better team, but this is a good spot for Indiana. The Buckeyes are coming off a huge win at home, and this is only Ohio State’s second road game. I think this one is closer than most expect.
