Penn State Nittany Lions at Indiana Hoosiers Preview

Coming off a bye week, the Nittany Lions will hit the road to open Big 10 conference play in Bloomington against the Hoosiers.  Penn State has never lost to Indiana in 16 all time meetings, although the NCAA would dispute whether or not they have ever actually beaten IU. Here are the particulars to get you ready for Saturday, which will be updated through out the week.

There is no doubting that Indiana possesses perhaps the most potent offense Penn State will see this season.  Nearly 350 yards per game through the air, and 44.5 points per game both rank in the upper echelons of FBS football.  The issue lies on the other side of the ball, where the Hoosier defense is allowing over 460 yards of offense, and nearly 33 points per game, and that is with a 42-10 win over Bowling Green.

On the offensive side, Nate Sudfeld has taken hold of the quarterback spot over Tre Roberson, and thrown for 1,146 yards and 11 TDs already, against 5 interceptions.  Tevin Coleman is averaging nearly 7 yards per carry, and 4 different receivers have caught double digit passes, lead by Cody Latimer’s 19.
