Indiana at Virginia preview
Indiana looked like it could pull off the first huge upset of the 2017 season, as it led Ohio State in the third quarter. But the Buckeyes turned a close game into a 28-point blowout win. Now the Hoosiers will have to regroup in time for a road game against an ACC foe while trying to avoid an 0-2 start to the season.
Expect the Hoosiers to bring a pass-happy offense into Saturday’s game. In the season-opening loss to Ohio State, Indiana QB Richard Lagow attempted 65 passes, completing 40 of them for 410 yards, 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. On the ground, Indiana picked up only 17 yards on 27 attempts. Defensively, Ohio State scored 36 points in the second half of a 49-21 win. The Buckeyes picked up 596 total yards with an almost even split between passing and rushing (304-292).
As for Virginia, QB Kurt Benkert starred in the Cavaliers’ 18-point win against William & Mary. Benkert passed for 262 yards, throwing 3 touchdowns without an interception. Jordan Ellis led the rushing attack with 80 yards and a score. Thanks to the win, Virginia is 1-0 for the first time since the 2013 season, when the Cavaliers beat BYU, 19-16. If Virginia wins again on Saturday, it would be 2-0 for the first time since 2012. The Cavaliers defeated Richmond and Penn State to begin the season.
This will be the third meeting all-time between Indiana and Virginia. The Hoosiers have yet to beat the Cavaliers, losing in 2009 and 2011. In the most recent meeting, Virginia won 34-31 in Bloomington, Ind. In the 2009 game, the Hoosiers dominated to a 47-7 home win. Indiana must beat Virginia to avoid an 0-2 start for the first time since the 2011 season. That year, the Hoosiers finished 1-11.
Going into Saturday’s game, Indiana has played an ACC team three times since the start of the 2015 season. That season, it beat Wake Forest, 31-24. The Hoosiers then lost to Duke, 44-41 in overtime, in the Pinstripe Bowl. In 2016, they lost to Wake Forest, 33-28.
Both teams are trying to end a stretch of losing seasons. Virginia hasn’t posted a .500-or-better season since going 8-5 in 2011. Indiana has a longer string of losing seasons, last finishing with a winning record in 2007 (7-6).
