what to know

The Indiana Hoosiers have enjoyed the comforts of home in their last three games, but now they must go on the road. They will face the Cincinnati Bearcats at 3:30 pm ET on Saturday at Nippert Stadium. With a combined 945 yards offense in their previous games, we can expect a fast-paced matchup.

It may have taken extra time to get the job done, but the Hoosiers finally got the result they were hoping for last week with a 33-30 win over the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. IU’s success was spearheaded by the efforts of quarterback Connor Bazelak, who passed for two touchdowns and 364 yards on 55 attempts, and RB Josh Henderson, who had a rushing touchdown.

The special teams added 13 points for IU. K Charles Campbell kicked four field goals, the longest of which was 50 yards in overtime, which ultimately made the difference in the game.

Meanwhile, Cincinnati ran circles around the Miami (OH) RedHawks last week, and the extra yards (473 yards to 182 yards) paid off. Cincinnati hurt Miami (OH) with a strong 38-17 win. The Bearcats can attribute much of their success to RB Charles McClelland, who rushed for two touchdowns and 101 yards on 19 carries.

The Hoosiers should know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the 16.5-point margin they face. Against the spread, they have been the house favorites this year with a risky 0-2 ATS record.

The victories took IU to 3-0 and Cincinnati to 2-1. A couple of defensive stats to remember as you watch: IU ranks 11th in the nation when it comes to rushing touchdowns allowed, with only one on the season. As for Cincinnati, they enter the contest with just 150 passing yards allowed per game on average, which ranks 11th in the nation.
