Indiana Hoosiers @ (2) Ohio State Buckeyes
WHERE: Ohio Stadium – Columbus, OH
KICKOFF: Saturday, October 8 @ 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN
LINE: OSU -29
You might be asking yourself, “why is this a match up to watch this weekend?” Ohio State has been burying opponents all season long and hosts the Hoosiers at the Shoe. I’ll tell you why.
Last year, Indiana gave the Buckeyes a very good game in Bloomington last season. Despite injuries to their starting quarterback and running back in that game, the Hoosiers had a chance to tie the game in the closing seconds with a 4th and goal. What happened? A bad snap ruined any chance of us finding out what trickery head coach Kevin Wilson had dialed up on that last play.
Sure, OSU is the heavy favorite and is nearly invincible in Columbus. But, Indiana is a team on the rise. Their offense is streaky, but formidable. Indiana’s defense will never be ranked near the top of the Big Ten, but, they have a knack for making plays at the right time. Expect an OSU win this Saturday, however, the game should be a fun one to watch.
