The Indiana Hoosiers want to end their season in style. With an 8-4 record, they have the golden opportunity to win nine games for the first time since 1967. That alone could serve as motivation for Indiana to go all out. Leading the Hoosiers on offense is Payton Ramsey. Since taking over from Michael Penix Jr., he has amassed 2,227 yards with 13 touchdowns in 10 games. Their defense should be something to watch as well. This season, Indiana has limited opponents to 24.5 points and 350.7 yards per game.
