The Line: Indiana Hoosiers +6.5 -- Over/Under: 60.5
The Iowa Hawkeyes put their perfect record on the line when they visit the Indiana Hoosiers in week ten.
The defense first Iowa Hawkeyes continued to win with a 31-15 decision versus Maryland in week ten that upped their record to 8-0. The offense wasn’t great with just 293 yards but the defense was with 261 yards allowed with four forced turnovers including a pick six. Quarterback CJ Beathard was okay despite misfiring too often with 183 passing yards on 12-23 with Matt VandeBerg leading the Hawkeyes with three receptions for 54 yards. Akrum Wadley led the Iowa rushing attack with 67 yards and a touchdown although it took him 19 carries while LaShun Daniels Jr. totaled 60 yards on 13 touches with a trip to the end zone.
After a 4-0 start to the season the Indiana Hoosiers have been in a funk as losers in four straight. The Hoosiers are coming off of a 52-26 loss at Michigan State with a 31-6 second half run by the Spartans winning it. MSU led 540-389 in yardage and held the ball for 39 minutes. The Hoosiers needed more yardage on the ground but Jordan Howard’s 78 yards on eleven carries and a touchdown wasn’t enough to worry Michigan State. Indiana turned to the right arm of quarterback Nate Sudfeld who completed 23-37 for 308 yards with three touchdowns and a pick with receivers Simmie Cobbs Jr. and Mitchell Paige combining for 13 catches for 207 yards.
