Game 6 Primer – Rutgers

What: Rutgers (1-4) at Indiana (3-2)

Where: Memorial Stadium

When: Saturday, October 12, 2019

How to Watch: The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network. You can also listen to the game on the IU Radio Network with the legendary Don Fischer on the call.

Series History: The Hoosiers and the Scarlet Knights have met on five occasions, beginning in 2014. Rutgers won the first two contests but the Hoosiers have won the last three. The series includes the infamous IU collapse in 2015 and three of these games have been very close.

What’s at Stake: Both teams are looking for their first Big Ten victory. Rutgers has an interim coach and is very likely going to be a program that looks entirely different in 2020. Indiana is 3-2 and this is the first of a four-game stretch that is going to define the 2019 season. To be blunt, this is a game that Indiana cannot lose if they are to reach a bowl game. In addition, it is Homecoming weekend in Bloomington.

Matchup to Watch Week 7: Indiana Football vs. Raised Expectations

Written by Sammy Jacobs (@Hoosier_Huddle)

For this week’s matchup to watch, I decided to go off the beaten path and chose how Indiana will handle raised expectations instead of how they matchup on the field with a Rutgers team that has fired its coach and have rumored to have lost a starting running back (Raheem Blackshear) and quarterback (Art Sitkowski) to sitting out the year and red shirting. On the field I will be watching how Indiana’s defense handles the Rutgers running attack.
