We're the number one rush defense again, and our pass defense just keeps getting better. Now, if only that would translate into a win...

Note: The Redzone TD% and Redzone TD% Defense are calculated by me and not ranked by the NCAA. Determining who has the advantage in these categories is strictly my arbitrary judgment.

Quick thoughts: Welp, our run offense is so bad that it give Indiana its only double logo of the board. And the other surprise? Indiana's run offense is so good that they get a push against the number 1 rush D in the land--though that didn't help OSU too much, as we held them to a season low.

My other big thought? If we can get on offense what the Indiana defense is letting up on average so far this season, we'll exceed our season average, and we should win going away. Here's to hoping, guys.

What do you guys think?
