Indiana Hoosiers vs Nebraska Cornhuskers 10/26/2019
A big question for the Hoosiers this Saturday is who will play quarterback. Michael Penix Jr. remains doubtful due to injury. Should he be unavailable, Peyton Ramsey will be called upon once more. Against Maryland, he was 20-for-27 for 193 yards and a touchdown. However, the change in the quarterback position may tilt the odds a bit. Other than that, the Cornhuskers need to be prepared for the Hoosiers’ defense. Indiana allows opponents just 20.9 points per game. Other players to watch include Nick Westbrook and Donovan Hale.

The Cornhuskers are aching to get back on track as well. However, they too may need to play with a different quarterback at the helm. Adrian Martinez remains doubtful this Saturday. He did not play in the last game and is likely to remain out due to a knee injury. Nick Verdal will likely quarterback once more. Against the Golden Gophers, he completed 14 of 23 passes for 135 yards. Nebraska will look for their middle defense to give Indiana some problems.
