Seeing a higher ranking for Indiana than Michigan in basketball is maybe possible. Seeing it in football matchup feels like a typo. But here we are. Indiana pulled off a miraculous overtime win against Penn State in the BIG-10 opening week, two weeks ago. If you haven't seen the ending yet, do yourself a favor.
The Hoosiers didn't stop there though. They handedly beat BIG-10 Conference punching bag Rutgers beating them 37-21 last week. That put them at #13 in the nation taking the spot of where Michigan was ranked last week before they lost to Michigan State by a field goal. After the Penn State win, Indiana immediately became ranked at #17. The Hoosiers are trying to go 3-0 for the first time since 1988.
They're already building off a strong season 8-5 season where they made a bowl game for the first time since 2016. They lost to Tennessee only by one point. This team's offense has really developed under fourth-year head coach Tom Allen. Ironically enough for Allen who has been a defensive coordinator for most of his career.
They are led by quarterback Michael Penix Jr. who threw for three touchdowns last week against Rutgers and a major improvement over the one touchdown and interception against Penn State. If he is to play like he did last week, they will prove themselves as legitimate contenders in the BIG-10.
