Eyeing IU


For starters

Indiana plays its biggest football game in a long time, facing Wisconsin.

The winner has the inside track to represent the Leaders Division at the Big Ten championship.

Ohio State and Penn State are ineligible for the championship game. Wisconsin has a 3-2 conference record. Indiana is 2-3 in the Big Ten.

For Indiana, the key will be trying to slow down running back Montee Ball. Ball has 1,028 rushing yards. He is fifth in the Big Ten, averaging 114.2 rushing yards per game.

IU is ranked 12th in the Big Ten in rushing defense (208.4 yards per game).

Wisconsin will be starting a new quarterback. Curt Phillips replaces an injured Joel Stave. This is Phillips' first start of the season.

IU quarterback Cameron Coffman threw three touchdowns last week in a win against Iowa.
