Gameday Coverage: Penn State at Indiana
The Nittany Lions are in Bloomington this weekend to take on the Hoosiers of Indiana, looking to snap a four-game losing streak, and get one win closer to the six-win threshold that grants a team bowl eligibility. After a 44-24 beatdown from Indiana last year, Penn State will look to return to its historic dominance over the Hoosiers, who are just 1-16 all-time against the Blue and White.
The Hoosiers have had a mixed season, so far going 3-5 with a great win in Columbia against the then-ranked Missouri Tigers, and a loss to Bowling Green. Indiana needs a win here to have any realistic shot of making a bowl game.
