Gameday Coverage: Penn State vs. Indiana
Good afternoon from Bloomington, Indiana where the Penn State Nittany Lions (3-1) are set to face the Indiana Hoosiers (2-2) in the Big Ten conference opener. Penn State enters the game coming off of a bye week that followed a 34-0 shutout victory against Kent State. Indiana won its opener against 73-35 before losing a close game to Navy 41-35. The Hoosiers beat Bowling Green 42-10 in Week 3 and lost to Missouri 45-28 two weeks ago before having a bye. Indiana led by head coach Kevin Wilson who is 7-21 in his third season at the helm. Bill O’Brien is facing Indiana for the second time as Penn State’s head coach and will look to add on to the Nittany Lions’ perfect record (16-0) against the Hoosiers.
