Penn State Football vs. Indiana
With only two games left in the season, the Penn State football team returns home to the friendly confines of Beaver Stadium to face Indiana and Wisconsin.
The Nittany Lions suffered a close loss last week on the road to No. 14 Nebraska, bringing their road record to 3-2 on the season.
So far it's been a pretty successful season for the team, considering everything that happened in the offseason. There's been plenty of pleasant surprises.
Senior Matt McGloin leads the Big Ten in passing yards, completion and touchdowns. Freshman tight end Kyle Carter, has enjoyed a breakout season with 36 catches and 2 touchdowns and was named to the Mackey Award Mid-Season Watch List as one of the nation's top tight ends. Sophomore wide receiver Allen Robinson(63 catches 786 yards and 8 touchdowns) will break the Penn State single season reception mark with his next catch.
While there is plenty to be proud of in Bill O'Brien's inaugural season, there is still work to be done, beginning this Saturday at noon.
Heading into Saturday's matchup against Indiana, the Nittany Lions will bring a perfect 15-0 record against the Hoosiers. Indiana is currently 4th in the leaders division with a 2-4 record.
Yet the Hoosiers are no slouch.
Their offense should pose a challenge as it is ranked third in the Big Ten with a 31.2 points per game average.
The key for Penn State's defense will be stopping the passing attack of Indiana which averages 293.2 yards per game. The Hoosiers have two solid quarterbacks in sophomore Cameron Coffman and freshman Nate Sudfeld.
