BUCKEYES 29 POINT FAVORITES: Ohio State opened as a 32 point favorite against Indiana — the spread has since dropped to 29. The Hoosiers enter the game with serious momentum after taking down Sparty 24-21 in Bloomington. The 3-1 Hoosiers only loss came at the hands of undefeated Wake Forest. They will face considerably tougher competition Saturday. And, even as a four touchdown favorite the Buckeyes are not looking by them. Bill Rabinowitz with more on how Indiana’s upset of Michigan State got OSU’s attention.
