Ohio State Buckeyes @ Indiana Hoosiers

Ohio State is 65-12-5 vs Indiana. They are 42-10-4 at home and 23-2-1 at Bloomington. The Buckeyes beat Navy 31-27 at home. The next week they lost a heart breaker to the USC Trojans at home in the last minutes 15-18. They Buckeyes come to Bloomington with two previous shutouts Blanking Toledo at Cleveland 38-0 and Illinois 30-0 at home. The lat time they had two shut outs back to back was 1996 blanking Minnesota 45-0 and Illinois 48-0. The last time OSU shut out Indiana was 10-18-97 31-0, in Columbus. The last time the Buckeyes shut out Indiana at Bloomington was 10-5-63 with the score being 21-0. The most points the Buckeyes have scored on Indiana is 56, they've done this twice, winning 56-0 in Columbus on 10-19-57 and 56-17 in Bloomington 56-17 on 11-5-1983. The Buckeyes gave up 41 points in a 41-7 in Bloomington on 10-8-88, while the worst loss at home was a32-10 loss in Columbus during Woody Hayes's first year on 10-20-51. After that game coach Hayes said, he would never lose to Indiana again. He kept his word going  22-1-1 all time against the Hoosiers.
Coach Tressel has an all time  6-0 record and is 3-0 on the road against Indiana. The last time these two teams hooked up OSU won 44-3 in Columbus, the last time these two Big Ten foes matched up in Bloomington OSU won 41-10.

With Kurt Coleman serving a one game suspension I don't believe the Bucks have a shot at the shut out, but they will only give up one TD pass very late in the game.  The offense keeps improving. Boom Herron not 100% Saine is going to start.
OSU wins 41-10.
