Indiana vs Ohio State Pick: College Football Week 12
Indiana vs Ohio State Pick – College Football Week 12: It really wasn’t that long ago that a top 10 matchup meant you could truly count on a closely-contested battle The gap between good college football teams and really, really good college football programs has widened, however, and Saturday’s Big Ten showdown between the Indiana Hoosiers and Ohio State Buckeyes is a perfect example.
Match-Up and Trends
Picked as a 150/1 longshot on the NCAA football futures to win the Big Ten, interim head coach Tom Allen and Indiana have certainly exceeded expectations up to this point. Everything started with the shocking 36-35 overtime victory as touchdown underdogs over Penn State to begin the season, and the momentum carried the Hoosiers all the way to a dominant 24-0 blanking of Michigan State last week as touchdown favorites, their fourth cover in as many games.
Measure of Expectation
Ryan Day and Ohio State were forced to take last week off due to virus issues at Maryland, and the Buckeyes should be champing at the bit to remove any doubt who owns the Big Ten. Justin Fields has been just about as perfect as a quarterback could be, the junior completing nearly 87% of his passes with 11 TD and no interceptions to lead the nation with a 222.4 rating.
Indiana vs Ohio State Pick
It was a long time ago that Indiana enjoyed any success in this rivalry. You have to go back to 1988 to find the Hoosiers’ last win in the series, that season marking the last time Ohio State posted a losing record. The Buckeyes have won the last 24 collisions, though the Hoosiers have covered seven of the last nine, as well as their last five trips to Columbus. I’ll be pulling for the upset, but betting the chalk with a play on Ohio State.
