Our Prediction:

Ohio State will win

Ohio State – Indiana Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 12:00

After losing to Michigan State 35-21 two weeks ago, the Hoosiers got back in the win column last week with a 24-17 win on the road at Rutgers. Quarterback Peyton Ramsey paced the Indiana offense, throwing for over 200 yards in his second straight game, finishing with 288 yards passing and a touchdown, as well as 51 yards rushing and a score on the ground.

Young is tied with Bosa for the team lead in sacks with four this season, while defensive tackle DreMont Jones sits just behind the dynamic defensive ends with 3.5. Even though Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley was able to find plenty of room to run on the ground, finishing with 175 yards rushing, Ohio State was able to register four sacks in the victory. The Buckeyes now have 19 sacks this season, which ranks second in the country.

Coaching Scott and the rest of Indianas running backs is someone who is still looking for his first win against Ohio State. Former Michigan running back Mike Hart is Indianas running backs coach and assistant head coach. Not only did Hart go 0-4 against the Buckeyes during his playing career with the Wolverines, but he has failed to register a win over the Buckeyes as running backs coach of Western Michigan in 2015, as well as last year in his first year Indianas running backs coach.

Maryland's offense should be one of the Big Ten's best under first-year coach Mike Locksley, but this isn't a team blessed with depth and a ton of talent at the skill positions. 247Sports take: Remember the chaos surrounding Ohio State's defense following last year's high-scoring win against the Terps on the road? If the Buckeyes are caught out of position and don't tackle well, it could happen again.

Indiana will need to force Ohio State into some turnovers, because they dont produce much in terms of a pass rush. Of the 10 sacks the Hoosiers have recorded so far this year, only four of those have come from defensive ends or tackles. Marcelino Ball, who plays the husky position for the Hoosiers, which is a linebacker/safety hybrid spot, leads the team with two sacks this season.

The freshman running back is a load, weighing in at over 230 pounds, Scotts breakout game came in the second game of the season, where he rushed for 204 yards in a 20-16 win over Virginia. The Syracuse native followed that performance up with a 100-yard performance against Ball State, but has been slowed in recent weeks, rushing for just 76 yards over the past two games. If Indiana tries to get their running game going, Ohio States defenders could have their arms full in trying to slow down Stevie Scott.

While Borlands performance was impressive, the most notable effort from an Ohio State linebacker on Saturday night came from Malik Harrison. The Walnut Ridge product was tasked with spying Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley on numerous occasions, finishing the game with a career-high eight tackles. Harrison is currently second on the team with 20 tackles this year, trailing safety Jordan Fuller by two for the team lead.

The point total was definitely under, Ohio State did not score 40, and while Okudah had a big game on the coverage units, he didn't do anything extraordinary on defense. Special teams, particularly Drue Chrisman making nine pretty good punts, definitely played a big part in this game. Additionally, we nailed KJ Hamler scoring on a big play, and Trace McSorley did have a 51 yard scramble, which was big, but PSU did not score on another long play.

at Northwestern (Oct. 18)

He averages 6.4 yards per pass attempt and 6 adjusted yards per throw. He has completed 115 passes on 162 attempts for a completion percentage of 71%. The Hoosiers average 5.4 yards per play, which is 92nd in college football. On the ground Indiana has run for 897 yards as a team, which ranks 51st in the country. As a team they have accumulated a total of 120 1st downs this year, placing them 21st overall as an offensive unit. The Indiana Hoosiers are 66th in Division 1 in points scored with 141. Peyton Ramsey has thrown for 1,039 yards this season. His quarterback rating this year is 135. The Hoosiers have been penalized on offense 30 times for 322 yards so far this season, which has them 63rd in the nation in penalties. They've run 207 times, averaging 4.3 yards per carry as a rushing unit. They have run 384 plays this season for 2,061 yards, which ranks them 53rd in the nation in total offense.

Wade made the move from cornerback to safety earlier this season, and while he's been playing as the team's nickel corner in games, he's been working at practice with the safeties. It seems like Greg Schiano wants to eventually move Wade to safety, but with games against TCU and PSU on the road in two of the last three weeks, it wasn't an ideal time for trial and error.
