We have reached week three of the college football season and in this game it’s a Big Ten showdown. In this game the Ohio State Buckeyes make the trip to Bloomington to take on the Indiana Hoosiers.
Last year when these two teams faced off the Hoosiers were blown out losing 49-26.
Ohio State Buckeyes
The Ohio State Buckeyes have looked really good in the first two games, especially with what they did in their last game.
They took on the Cincinnati Bearcats in their last game and it was a blowout winner with the Buckeyes coming out ahead 42-0.
The offense really doesn’t have any questions, but there were still some questions about the defense heading into week one.
In their last game against the Bearcats the defense flexed their muscles and they are going to try and prove a point again in this one.
On offense the Buckeyes are led by quarterback by Justin Fields who comes into this game having thrown for 458 yards and six touchdowns.
On the other side of this matchup is the Indiana Hoosiers who also come into this game with a 2-0 record but they haven’t been tested like the Buckeyes have.
The Hoosiers have decided to go young at quarterback starting freshman Michael Penix Jr. who has thrown for 523 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions.
There are going to be some growing pains with Penix, but the future should be bright for this team with him under center.
In this game of course the offense needs to be good, but the defense needs to step up in a big way. The defense has confidence right now, but this is a whole different type of test.
If the Hoosiers defense struggles in this game, it’s going to be a blowout and they will be going back to the drawing board.
