The Indiana Hoosiers football team has done its part in 2020, and now they’ll have to face the consequences.

The Hoosiers are 4-0, having knocked off both Michigan schools in dominant fashion over consecutive weeks, and Penn State to open the season. They’d never beat both the Nittany Lions and Wolverines in the same year. Indiana held serve against a feisty Rutgers team and have walked themselves right into a Saturday showdown with the scariest gunfighter in the Great Lakes region.

Indiana is packing up like the Road Warriors to face the Ohio State Buckeyes on the banks of the Olentangy. Both teams are ranked in the top ten, and FOX College Football has made it their game of the week, but the Buckeyes are used to being there, Indiana is not.

The game not only will be the Hoosiers stiffest test of the season, it may in fact be their first as each of their previous victories has become less impressive as their opponents continue to lose. The combined record of the teams the Hoosiers have beat is 3-13. 

Indiana’s head coach Tom Allen talked about what has been and what’s to come during his Monday afternoon press conference. Some of the highlights are laid out below.
