Off to a 3-1 start, Tom Allen and the Indiana Hoosiers have positioned themselves well in their attempt to reach a bowl game.

Starting redshirt junior Peyton Ramsey at quarterback in each of the last two games following an injury to redshirt freshman Michael Penix Jr., Allen was asked about his team’s quarterback situation ahead of their trip to East Lansing to face the No. 25 Michigan State Spartans.

Indiana Sports Beat Radio with Jim Coyle provided video of Allen’s response on Twitter:

Stepping into a tough situation, Ramsey lost his first start of the season to the No. 5 Ohio State Buckeyes, 51-10. He fared much better vs. UConn, completing 23-27 passes for 247 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.

A product of Elder High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, Ramsey started all 12 games for the program in 2018.

Remaining vague during his response in the attached video, very little information has surfaced regarding Penix’s injury. The Tampa, Florida native was on the field for warm-ups prior to the Ohio State game, but did not appear in the game.

Based on footage from the win over Eastern Illinois, it would appear Penix is deal with an injury to his throwing (left) arm. However, this has not been confirmed by the program.

Throwing for 523 yards and adding another 79 on the ground prior to his injury, Penix provides the Hoosiers with another element offensively. Facing a stout Michigan State defense, Indiana could certainly use Penix’s dual-threat abilities.

Saturday’s action from East Lansing will kick at 3:30PM ET and be broadcast on the Big Ten Network.
