Indiana came very close to upsetting Michigan State and its only other loss is to Ohio State. Rutgers on the other hand is a team in deep turmoil. The Scarlet Knights have fired their head coach and have an interim in place; have red-shirted their top running back and receiver Raheem Blackshear; and have benched quarterback Artur Sitkowski. Take the home chalk. Final Score Prediction, Indiana Hoosiers win and cover ATS 42-10
