All of the above rankings are taken directly from the NCAA except for strength of schedule, which is taken from Team Rankings.com.
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.
I’m old enough to remember when the numbers said this game would be a one-sided dominant win for the Nittany Lions, yet the Hoosiers made it a ballgame with a chance to go up after an onside kick near the end of regulation.
But this is another year, and this game isn’t in Bloomington but in State College. How this young Penn State team responds after tallying their first loss last week in Minnesota will say a lot as to how the rest of the season goes - these numbers here show how much Indiana has improved under Tom Allen, as does their ranking in the AP poll.
Can the Lions bounce back and dominate as their talent says they should? Or will Indiana be the chaos team and get their signature win?
What say you all?
