Season To Date: 1-2
Last week Arkansas State let me down with a huge loss and only scoring 7 points against Toledo. With a fair amount of points and a good QB coming back, I figured they could keep up offensively but I was wrong.
Ohio State at Indiana (+21)
Ohio State has not been super impressive thus far and Indiana is much better than given credit for. The Buckeyes QB situation is still in flux and there seems to be very little rhythm for the Ohio State offense, even in the run game. They are explosive and can put up points, so it is risky to go against them, but they are also turnover prone. Indiana’s defense isn’t much to write home about (their best performance was giving up 22 points at home to FIU,) but the offense for the Hoosiers is solid.
Indiana has a strong run game and offensive line that should control the clock and score on the Buckeyes defense. They have scored at least 30 points in every game this season and UAB transfer RB Jordan Howard has had at least 145 yards in each of those games. Ohio State’s defense will disrupt them at times, but expect undefeated IU to match points and at least cover the 3 TD spread.
