The No. 8 team in the land, the undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes (6-0) head to Memorial Stadium in Bloomington, Ind. for a Saturday night meeting with one of their oldest rivals, the Indiana Hoosiers (2-3).

They have met at the 50-yardline 80 times before as members of the Big Ten Conference, with the Buckeyes holding a commanding 68-8-4 advantage over the Hoosiers all-time.

Ohio State walks into Bloomington fresh off of a 63-38 beating it laid on Nebraska, a game that saw QB Braxton Miller account for 313 yards of total offense and two touchdowns.

Indiana watched its 13-point halftime lead disappear against the Michigan State Spartans, allowing 17 unanswered second half points to the Spartans en route to a heart breaking 31-27 loss.

Key Storyline: Can Ohio State Stay Focused?


What They're Saying

Ohio State redshirt sophomore cornerback Bradley Roby tells Michael Periatt of The Lantern, Ohio State's student-run newspaper, that the Buckeyes have their eyes on the prize, paying no attention to the fact that the team is ineligible for postseason play:

We’re trying to go 12-0, win every single game. Trying to get that AP No. 1, go and win the national championship. That’s our goal.

Head Coach Urban Meyer, not known for offenses that are of the ground-and-pound variety, has no complaints about his team's lack of a potent passing attack:

We’re kind of a pound-ya offense right now. I don’t mind that. I’ve not had a lot of those. But that’s a pound-ya offense.


Ohio State Player to Watch: Braxton Miller, QB

Miller is the 11th-most potent runner in the nation, averaging 127.17 yards per game on the ground. Only two quarterbacks—Michigan's Denard Robinson (135.20) and Northern Illinois' Jordan Lynch (131.50)—average more than Miller, who leads the Buckeyes with 763 yards rushing and eight rushing touchdowns.

Against a Hoosiers' defense that's allowing nearly 200 yards rushing per game, Miller looks poised to have another big day, one that will only increase the volume on those who say he's a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate this season.


Indiana Player to Watch: Cameron Coffman, QB


Prediction: Ohio State 45, Indiana 21

Indiana played well on both sides of the ball against the Spartans but it hasn't seen a team quite as explosive as the Buckeyes. Miller's ability to take over a game will prove to be too much for a Hoosiers' squad that will hang around early but ultimately prove to be no match for Ohio State.
