Let the war of words begin.

On Tuesday, Nebraska defensive coordinator Mark Banker talked about the Huskers’ upcoming game against Indiana and how much trouble that potent offense presents. Banks wasn’t bashful with his answers when talking about the Hoosiers:

Once again, Indiana has one of the most balanced offensive teams in the B1G. The Hoosiers currently lead the conference in passing yards per game (293.0 ypg) and have a back, Devine Redding, who is pushing a 100-yard per game average for the season. Saturday’s game against Ohio State was the first time Indiana didn’t eclipse the 400-yard mark offensively this season.

Nebraska has been solid defensively but nothing too special to this point. It currently ranks sixth in the B1G against the run and seventh at defending the pass. The Huskers will have a big test this weekend.

Though Banker made the accusation that the Hoosiers are stealing signals, Brian Rosenthal didn’t seem to think the defensive coordinator was bothered by the tactic:

This was going to be an interesting match-up before Banker’s comments. Banker’s comments could make things even more intriguing.

Saturday’s game is scheduled for a 3:30 EST kickoff at Memorial Stadium in Bloomington. The game will be aired on ESPN2 and ABC.
