Ohio State plays their biggest game of the season tomorrow when they face off against Indiana. How will the game play out?
Ohio State faces a top-10 team tomorrow at noon when they face off against the Hoosiers of Indiana. Before the season, no one thought that IU would be a ranked team, let alone in the top 10 at any point. The Hoosiers are for real and will be putting up a big fight.
No one has been able to stop Justin Fields so far this season. The Heisman finalist from a year ago is completing almost 87% of his passes, has 11 touchdowns, and just 9 incompletions. The man has been absolutely on fire to start this season. Now he’s the favorite to win this year’s Heisman.
Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson have helped Fields out a lot too. Both have been amazing and are expected to be once again tomorrow. IU has a good defense, but no defense is good enough to stop this passing attack. Fields should light the Hoosiers up.
The reason why Indiana has been so impressive this season is their own offense. Michael Penix Jr. has been a revelation for the Hoosiers. They have been able to score at least 24 points in all of their games this season, and Penix is a large reason for that.
Game prediction: Ohio State 42 Indiana 24
This is the first game in which I don’t have the Buckeyes covering. The defense just hasn’t looked completely right yet this season, and this is the best offense they will face all season long. That offense will likely put up a decent amount of points on Ohio State.
Unfortunately for the Hoosiers, it still won’t be enough. This Buckeye team is on a mission to get back to the CFP after the semi-final was stolen from them. They won’t let Indiana stop them on their way to fulfilling their destiny.
