Ohio State's offense finally showed some life as Cardale Jones played better, but still showed inconsistencies, especially in the second half against Western Michigan. Although throwing for 288 yards and two touchdowns against the Broncos, Jones also threw an interception and fumbled.
Ezekiel Elliot continued to play well rushing for 124 yards at 7.8 yards per carry clip. Elliot has over 100 yards in every game this year to go along with five touchdowns. Despite his success last week it was the second time this year Ohio State failed to get Zeke 20 touches. Ohio State will be at their best when Elliot is getting the ball early and often and the Buckeyes can dictate the pace and flow of the game.
While Howard is running, 6-6 senior quarterback Nate Sudfeld will be throwing as he has over 1100 yards on the year to go along with 7 touchdowns to just one interception, Thanks to Howard and Sudfeld the Hoosiers are averaging 38.2 points and 522 yards per game.
While showing an ability to score on offense, the Hoosier defense has yet to stop anyone this year. Indiana is giving up a whopping 499 yards along 32 points per game. Add to that the suspension of one of the Hoosiers top interior defensive lineman, tackle Darius Latham, and Indiana could see those awful defensive numbers get worse.
