The Hoosiers are off to a rocky start this season as they are 1-2 on the year after being ranked No.17 in the preseason AP Top-25 Poll.

Indiana lost their opener to  No.5 Iowa 34-6 on the road and then followed it up with a win against FCS Idaho 56-14 and lost at home this past Saturday 38-24 to No.8 Cincinnati.

This week the Hoosiers will be on the road for a rare trip to a group of 5 opponent in Western Kentucky. Tom Allen addressed the media ahead of Saturday’s matchup with the Hilltoppers.

Allen talked a lot about the targeting rule and how he believes it needs to be adjusted.

Allen gives an injury update on several key players.

Michael Penix is the Hoosiers’ starting QB, and Allen has complete faith in him.

Allen talks about star WR Ty Fryfogle and his uncharacteristic day on the gridiron.

Allen still believes this team can be special.

The Hoosiers and the Hilltoppers face off at 8:00 ET on CBSSN.
