Hoosiers on a Roll Ahead of Road Date with Undefeated Ohio State

The Indiana Hoosiers will take another shot at ending a 23-game winless streak against the Ohio State Buckeyes when the Big Ten conference rivals meet Saturday in a Week 6 matchup at Ohio Stadium.

Shark Bites
  • Indiana is 5-0 ATS in its last five games against Ohio State.
  • The total has gone OVER in Ohio State's last five games in Week 6.
  • Ohio State is 17-1 SU in its last 18 games against its conference.

Indiana improved to 3-1 straight up on the season with last weekend's 24-21 victory over Michigan State, ending a seven-game SU losing streak against the Spartans. The Hoosiers will now look to knock off the Buckeyes for the first time since 1988, and pick up their first win in Columbus in their past 13 visits.

The Buckeyes solidified their position at No. 2 on the AP Top 25 with last week's 58-0 thrashing of Rutgers to remain perfect on the season and extend their SU and against the spread win streak to six games.

Ohio State has surrendered just 9.25 points per game this season, and has posted SU wins in 16 of 17 home dates with conference rivals. However, the Buckeyes have covered in just two of their past five at home against the Big Ten, and must contend with a Hoosiers squad that is undefeated SU and ATS in its past three on the road.
