What to Know
The Indiana Hoosiers may be playing at home again on Saturday, but the experts are forecasting a four-point defeat. They will take on the Cincinnati Bearcats at noon ET at Memorial Stadium. Both teams are sauntering into the matchup backed by comfortable wins in their prior games.
The Hoosiers took their contest at home last week with ease, bagging a 56-14 win over the Idaho Vandals. The matchup was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 35-7.
Meanwhile, it was all tied up 7-7 at the half for Cincinnati and the Murray State Racers last week, but Cincinnati stepped up in the second half for a cozy 42-7 victory. The Bearcats can attribute much of their success to RB Jerome Ford, who rushed for three TDs and 113 yards on 18 carries.
Cincinnati’s defense was a presence as well, as it collected three interceptions and one fumble. Those interceptions were spread across their defensive unit.
Their wins bumped IU to 1-1 and Cincinnati to 2-0. Both the Hoosiers and Cincinnati have easy wins in recent memory. We’ll see which one’s ego takes a hit when they face off.
