Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs Indiana Hoosiers 10/12/2019
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
The Knights are plagued by internal problems. They are under an interim coach and fully aware that the road ahead is not easy. Quarterback Johnny Langan will be tasked to take over from Artur Sitowski but will need to cut down on the turnovers. Although he proved he could thrive in the running game, errors have been atrocious. Isaih Pacheco will need to play his part as well on offense. The Knights are just out to finish the season on a high note with internal issues hounding them this season.
Players to watch: Artur Sitowski QB 44 CMP 68 ATT 429 YDS 64.7 CMP% 6.3 AVG 74 LNG 1 TD 2 INT; Isaih Pacheco RB 75 ATT 340 YDS 4.5 AVG 57 LNG; Raheem Blackshear RB 29 ATT 88 YDS 3 AVG 8 LNG; Bo Melton WR 15 REC 256 YDS 17.1 AVG 52 LNG; Isaiah Washington WR 6 REC 91 YDS 15.2 AVG 37 LNG
A week of rest should help rejuvenate the Indiana Hoosiers offense. Last time they took the field, they fell short against the Michigan State Spartans. Despite the loss, a bright spot was quarterback Michael Penix Jr. Known to be a pass-first team on offense, Penix has proven he deserves to be on the Indiana squad. Barring any surprises, the Hoosiers should cop their fourth win this season to draw them closer to a bowl berth. Playing at home, Indiana is averaging 33.50 points per game with over 300 passing yards.
Players to watch: Michael Penix Jr. QB 71 CMP 102 ATT 809 YDS 69.6 CMP% 7.9 AVG 75 LNG 6 TD 2 INT; Stevie Scott III RB 76 ATT 281 YDS 3.7 AVG 19 LNG; Sampson James RB 24 ATT 49 YDS 2 AVG 9 LNG; Whop Philyor WR 31 REC 371 YDS 12 AVG 36 LNG; Donovan Hale WR 16 REC 283 YDS 17.7 AVG 43 LNG
