Indiana has been a major annoyance for Ohio State lately. Despite not picking up a win —and not having one in the series since 1988—the Hoosiers have pushed the Buckeyes to the brink , and have made each of the last four games competitive into the second half. With Ohio State’s big win over Penn State last weekend setting this up to be a prime letdown spot, can they do it again?

On this episode of the Hangout in the Holy Land, Patrick Mayhorn and I preview Saturday’s game, and whether we think Ohio State will play at peak performance after such a grueling win last week.
