The Indiana Hoosiers (2-3, 0-2) have not defeated a BCS team this season, and the No. 8 Ohio State Buckeyes (6-0, 2-0) have no desire to change that. But they will be heading into prime upset territory – a road game at night – on Saturday in Bloomington, Ind., against a team that came close to staging a massive upset last week.
The Hoosiers were up 17-0 in the first quarter on the road vs. Michigan State last Saturday, and held a lead late into the fourth quarter. They could not hold onto the victory, but they may be a team entering this Saturday's game with a newfound confidence. If there's anything that's a saving grace for Indiana, it's that they've been competitive in all three of their losses.
Still, the Buckeyes hope to have little trouble getting out of Bloomington with a victory. They will enter the game as three-score favorites, and their offense, which dropped 63 points on the Nebraska Cornhuskers last week, figures to roll along easily.
Game time, TV channel: 8 p.m. ET, Big Ten Network
Point spread: Ohio State favored by 17
