Indiana got one back in the win column last week, defeating Rutgers at home by a TD, after suffering their first defeat of the year at Michigan State two weeks ago. Let’s see if they can’t muddy up the waters a bit in the playoff conversation this week.
The Buckeyes won a game that they had no business winning last week at Penn State, but that’s why Ohio State is ranked #3 in the country. Good teams find a way to win ball games, and Ohio State is a very good team.
This ain’t your daddy’s Indiana Hoosiers football team. These guys come out to play each and every week, and as I have eluded to before in previous articles, they always seem to be at the forefront of the conversation for weather or not the Big Ten sends a team to the playoff or not.
Who remembers this matchup from last season? The Hoosiers dominated the Buckeyes for most of that game, and I think we’re going to see a lot of that again on Saturday. Their offense is putting up decent numbers on the year, and they should be able to crack the Buckeyes defense to get to the end zone a few times in this one.
But if they Hoosiers really want to win this thing, they’re going to have to remember their game plan from the first half of the game last year. They literally shut down the Buckeyes offense. This will have to be their main focus if they want to stand a chance against the powerful Ohio State Buckeyes.
#3 Ohio State Buckeyes
Other than their near loss last week to Penn State, the Buckeyes have looked downright flawless so far this season, even being without their head coach Urban Myer for the opening three games of the season.
Offensively, this team doesn’t mess around. They go for the jugular early, and often, scoring an average of 49 points per game, and beating their opponents by an average margin of 30.2 points per game. Yes, they look poised for yet another playoff run at the end of the season.
Not only will the Buckeyes score a ton, but they will embarrass you defensively too. Opponents are averaging a mere 18.8 points against them. They will really need to tighten up their D against the Hoosiers to avoid an upset that is years in the making.

While we would all love an upset here this week, I don’t think we’re going to get it. Ohio State will pick itself back up after last week, and take it to the Hoosiers.
