Hoosiers Offense Overmatched, Sputters Without Penix

Hoosiers Offense Overmatched, Sputters Without Penix

Written by Evan McShane (@veryreasonable)

Shortly after kickoff, it became clear that things would be very difficult offensively for the Hoosiers against Ohio State. The Buckeyes are always talented, but this year’s squad looks to be on a mission for the playoff. Simply put, it wouldn’t have mattered if Michael Penix was able to play today. The promising redshirt freshman is dealing with an apparently insignificant, although undisclosed injury that will have Penix’s status as week-to-week. Ohio State’s defense is much improved from a unit last year that gave up loads up explosive plays. Led by standout defensive end Chase Young who had two sacks and 2.5 tackles for loss by himself, the Buckeyes defense held Indiana to just 10 points on the day.

Indiana has not beaten the Ohio State Buckeyes since 1988 and that drought was never in danger of ending on Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium. Michael Penix Jr. was ruled out with an undisclosed injury and the Ohio State Buckeyes obliterated the Hoosiers (2-1), 51-10. The Buckeyes (3-0) looked every bit like a College Football Playoff contender as they dominated every facet of the contest and left no doubt about who the top dog in the Big Ten is. Ohio State’s J.K. Dobbins had 193 yards rushing with one touchdown and he added a receiving touchdown. Justin Fields was effective, going 14-24 for 199 yards and adding four total touchdowns. The Buckeyes outgained Indiana 519-258 and rolled to the convincing victory in their first road game of the season.
