Indiana is coming off one of the biggest wins in its recent history, but the stakes just got a whole lot higher. The Hoosiers visit No. 2 Ohio State on Saturday in a Big Ten showdown that presents an even bigger challenge for Indiana. The Hoosiers lost at home to Wake Forest two weeks ago but recovered to top then-No. 17 Michigan State last weekend despite trailing 14-0 late in the third quarter.

The Buckeyes are allowing 9.3 points – best in the nation – and rank third in the country in scoring at 57 points per outing.

The Hoosiers have received superb play from Ricky Jones, who has 13 catches for 332 yards and a score over the last two weeks. Richard Lagow recovered from a five-interception effort against Wake Forest to play better against the Spartans, while relying on Devine Redding (19 carries, 100 yards), who has reached the century mark in three of the four games this year.

Even though the Buckeyes return only six starters from last season, one of them is quarterback J.T. Barrett, who became the school’s all-time leader in touchdown passes (59) last week in a 58-0 rout of Rutgers. Barrett has 14 TD passes, three TD runs and only two interceptions this season, while his top three running backs are all averaging at least 7.2 yards per carry.

The Buckeyes have defeated the Hoosiers 20 straight times, including a 34-27 triumph in 2015.
