The Buckeyes hit the road tonight at 8 p.m. to take on the Indiana Hooisers in B1G play. Ohio State (6-0, 2-0) is now ranked No. 8 in the AP Poll and is an 18-point favorite over host Indiana (2-3, 0-2).
Let’s see if the Buckeyes can keep their offensive momentum going after putting up a ridiculous 63 points against Nebraska at home last week. This should be a relatively easy win, but OSU has a historic tendency to make games a bit closer than needed (i.e. California earlier this season).
No. 25 Michigan (3-2, 1-0) vs. Illinois (2-4, 0-2) is the only other non-12 p.m. game today in the conference, as that game kicks off at 3:30 p.m. The only other undefeated conference team in action today is Iowa (3-2, 1-0), which faces an early deficit at Michigan State (4-2, 1-1). Both Penn State and Nebraska are off this week.
In other Ohio action, the undefeated Bobcats (6-0, 2-0 MAC) host the lowly Akron Zips (1-5, 0-2) in Athens at 2 p.m. today. Looks like “Ohio” and Ohio should both improve to 7-0 easily today.
