Indiana is coming into this game looking like they belong in Big Ten royalty, and that trend will continue when this game is said and done.
Rutgers, on the other hand, look like they might be the worst football program in the country at the moment. No relief will come in their quest for redemption after last season’s embarrassing loss in Bloomington.
The past few years the Hoosiers football program has played a huge roll in whether or not the Big Ten has sent a team to the College Football Playoff. The team had seemed to accept its role as conference spoiler, but I think that time has come and gone.
Indiana started the season off with a three game winning streak before finally taking one in the loss column last weekend at home against Michigan State. The Hoosiers will get one back Saturday against the Scarlet Knights.
The Hoosiers come into this one averaging 29.3 points a game, which is a pretty solid offense, but on the other side of the ball, the defense has been giving up 22.3 points per game. I would expect both of those numbers to be far different in this game.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
Rutgers has been bad this year. Really bad. They have scored only 65 points on the season, and during their three game losing streak they have given up an average of 49.7 points per game.
Giving up 52 to Ohio State is a given, but to follow that up with a 55 point performance from Kansas, and here is the most baffling, 42 to Bufffalo, you have to start thinking that maybe your recruiting pipeline needs to be adjusted.
If not for their lopsided victory over Texas State in week one, this team would probably go winless this year. Don’t even for a moment think this team will stand a chance in this matchup.

Indiana. Hoosiers. No matter what I gotta call them for you to get it, pick the team from Bloomington!
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Indiana -15.
Indiana should have the spread covered before the end of the first quarter.
Don’t even mess with the O/U, just take Indiana covering the spread. This one will be ugly, but I don’t think it will be OVER ugly.
