Despite 2-4 start, Ryan Day says Ohio State expects Indiana to present challenges
Ohio State goes on the road to face Indiana in primetime this weekend.
The Hoosiers have been disappointing so far this season at 2-4 and 0-3 in B1G play.
Last year, Indiana gave Ohio State a scare in the shortened season but would end up falling short 42-35 and would be its only loss in B1G play.
“I think this team is much better than their record indicates,” said Day. According to Joey Kaufman of The Columbus Dispatch.
