BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) – Bloomington’s bracing for a Buckeye bash.
Top ranked and defending national champion Ohio State will take on a Hoosier team bringing a 4-0 record to the field for the first time in a quarter of a century.
Indiana has played OSU tough recently, giving the Hoosiers some confidence in one of the biggest games at Memorial Stadium in years.
“We’ve played them tough the last few years,” said quarterback Nate Sudfeld. “It doesn’t take a special formula to compete with these guys. They’ve got great players, we’ve got great players. We just need to come out, look at them right in the eye and compete.”
Top receiver Simmie Cobbs likes the team’s attitude saying, “They’re the national champions, and we’re going to play them with a chip on our shoulders. We’re going to prepare for them and make sure that we don’t beat ourselves.”
The I.U. and Ohio State match up kicks off at 3:30 Saturday at Memorial Stadium.
