COLUMBUS — A top-10 showdown comes to Columbus on Saturday as No. 3 Ohio State hosts No. 10 Indiana at noon inside Ohio Stadium in a key Big Ten East Division matchup.

Saturday’s game will be the first time that Ohio State and Indiana have played when both teams are ranked in the top 10 of the Associated Press poll. Ohio State currently ranks 13th nationally in total offense and is averaging 511.3 yards per game. The Buckeyes’ passing offense has been especially efficient, as it ranks 20th in yards per game (302.7) and No. 1 in completion percentage (.867)

The Buckeyes last played on Nov. 7, a 49-27 win over Rutgers, after last week’s contest at Maryland was canceled due to a COVID outbreak within the Terrapin progam. It was the first regular season cancellation since 1918 during the Spanish flu.

Indiana comes to Columbus on Saturday sporting a top-10 ranking for the first time since 1967. The Hoosiers own wins over Penn State, Rutgers, Michigan and Michigan State. Quarterback Michael Penix Jr. leads the conference in passing yards (1,070) and is second – behind Justin Fields – in touchdown passes with nine. Penix’s top receiving target is Ty Fryfogle, who leads the league with 424 receiving yards and has four touchdown catches.

The Hoosiers defense is fourth in the Big Ten in both total defense and scoring defense. The unit has a league-best 10 interceptions and is +8 in turnover margin, which is third-best nationally.

The game will kickoff Saturday at noon and can be seen on FOX.
