The Ohio State Buckeyes are on a roll and currently sit at 5-1 and ready to take on the Indiana Hoosiers in primetime in Bloomington, Indiana. Indiana is not having they year most thought they would as they currently sit at 2-4, but we know how the Hoosiers play the Buckeyes and they should not be take lightly.
Ohio State is coming off of a must needed off week and should be coming back with everyone at 100%, but Indiana is coming off another miserable loss against the Michigan State Spartans, 20-15. The oddsmakers love the Buckeyes to have a dominant victory as they are favored by almost three touchdowns at most books, but let’s dive into what the Buckeyes Wire staff predicts!

Ohio State might start out a little slow with some rust because of the bye week, but I expect the Buckeyes to find their groove somewhere late in the first quarter or early second and start to pile up the yards and points. Indiana just hasn’t been the same ball club as what we saw last year and won’t be able to create the havoc it did on defense in the second half last season.

They have suffered a ton of injuries and the offense has taken a giant step back from last season, but this defense is good. Their All-American corner, Tiawan Mullen has been out the last two weeks, but he is expected to be ready for Ohio State and they have a few talented guys across every level. Tom Allen is a good coach and I don’t think he lets his team get blown out in this spot.

Indiana keeps it close early, but the stands start to empty by the middle of the third quarter as Ohio State rolls. MORE:
