Ohio State and Indiana have been on a different trajectory this season. Ohio State is 5-1 and 3-0 in B1G play, sitting at No. 6 in the country.

For much of the season, Indiana has been in reverse; they are 2-3 and 0-2 in B1G play and are not in the AP Top-25 poll.

There are 2 players on both of these teams that are good friends. WR Chris Olave at Ohio State and QB Jack Tuttle at Indiana have been friends since high school.

Olave talked about his friendship with the Indiana QB.

“One of my best friends from high school,” said Olave, according to Griffin Strom of elevenwarriors.com. “And says they still talk to this day. Olave says he’s “one of the best leaders I’ve seen” and that he hopes he’ll be starting on October 23.”

Olave is one of the best WRs’ in the country and has played well again this season; he has 30 catches for 494 yards on 16.5 yards per reception and 7 touchdowns.

Tuttle came in for the injured QB Michael Penix Jr. in the game against No. 7 Penn State. Tuttle, who came in in relief for Penix, was 6-0f-12 for a 50% completion rate, throwing for 77 yards and an interception.

We do not know if Tuttle will play this Saturday as Penix is dealing with a separated AC joint.

The Buckeyes and the Hoosiers square off at 7:30 ET on ABC, in Bloomington, IN.,  on October 23.
