No 3 Ohio State v No 9 Indiana 2020

No 3 Ohio State v No 9 Indiana 2020


Who thought at the start of the Big Ten season that Indiana at Ohio State would be one of the biggest games of the season, probably nobody. But here we are with Ohio State coming into their fourth game against an Indiana team that is 4-0 and ranked nationally. The game is scheduled for Noon on Saturday November 21st with limited attendance but fans can watch on the Fox network.

Ohio State Offense

Justin Fields has had a great start as many thought he would, going 72 for 83 (86.7%) passes leading to 908 yards with no interceptions and 11 touchdowns. He has also ran for 2 touchdowns. Helping fields is a great group of receivers including Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson. They have 632 yards and 6 touchdowns combined. At tight-end Jeremy Ruckert has 3 touchdowns already on 9 catches for 60 yards.

Master Teague III has also been solid this season rushing for 211 yards and 4 touchdowns. When the Buckeyes need to punch it in, Teague and the line have been able to do so. The Buckeye’s do not have a back as talented as JK Dobbins this year but the combo of Teague and Trey Sermon have been able to get what the team needs.

Ohio State Defense

Defensively, Ohio State needs to improve in coverage and in the pass rush. Without Chase Young they have looked to Jonathan Cooper and Zach Harrison on the end, both who have been slowing starting to show that they can dominate a game. Quarterback Michael Penix Jr will have to have a great game for Indiana to keep it close. Ohio State is favored by 20.5 points, and that could be about right with Indiana scoring three times.

Indiana 2020

Indiana has beat Michigan State, Michigan, Penn State and Rutgers. Leading the way is the left-handed Penix with 9 touchdowns and 1070 yards passing. When his offensive line gives him time, he can be deadly. Ty Fryfogle is his main target with 4 touchdowns and 424 yards receiving. But what will really get a team down is the Hoosier’s ability to get turnovers. They have a +8 turnover margin with 10 interceptions through the 4 games. And against Michigan State, their defensive line was able to stuff everything that came their way. They can get to the quarterback also, leading the conference in sacks.
