The Indiana Hoosiers and Ohio State Buckeyes meet in week 8 Big Ten conference college football action from Indiana Memorial Stadium on Saturday night.

The Ohio State Buckeyes come into this one rested after routing Maryland 66-17 the week prior. C.J. Stroud has thrown for 1,699 yards, 15 touchdowns and 3 interceptions on 66.2% passing while TreVeyon Henderson has a team-high 612 rushing yards and 9 rushing TDs this season. Garrett Wilson leads Ohio State in receiving with 31 grabs for 546 yards and 6 touchdowns while Chris Olave has 30catches for 494 yards with a team-high 7 scores and Jaxon Smith-Njigba has 452 receiving yards this year. On defense, Ronnie Hickman leads the Buckeyes with 50 total tackles while Tyleik Williams has a team-high 4 sacks.

The Indiana Hoosiers will look to rebound from a 20-15 loss to Michigan State in their last game. Jack Tuttle has thrown for 356 yards, a touchdown and 3 interceptions on 51.4% passing while Stephen Carr has rushed for a team-high 439 yards and 4 scores. Ty Fryfogle leads Indiana with 33 grabs for 337 yards while Peyton Hendershot is second in receiving with 306 receiving yards this season. On defense, Micah McFadden has a team-high 36 total tackles with 3.5 sacks while Cam Jones has 35 total tackles and Ryder Anderson has 3.5 sacks of his own this year.

Ohio State is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 6-1-1 in their last 8 conference games. Indiana is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 3-11-1 ATS in their last 15 games as a home underdog while the over is 13-6 in their last 19 games against a team with a winning record.

I get the case that could be made for Indiana here, as a home dog is worth a look on most nights, especially getting multiple scores. However, this Indiana offense has slowed down without Michael Penix Jr. and Ohio State is just getting rolling it seems. I think this is easily a spot where the Buckeyes lay it on to try to impress the playoff committee. Give me Ohio State and lay the points with the Buckeyes here.
