After a bye week hiatus, we’re back with the scouting report. Up next, the Indiana Hoosiers. This is the first time the Huskers and Hoosiers have matched up in the Big 10, and though the Blackshirts may have liked the match up a few years ago, that’s far less true today. In a statistical oddity, Indiana’s offense is ranked 39th in total offense but only 84th in scoring offense. As can be expected, that is largely due to a putrid red zone offense, sitting at 124th (out of 128) in the country.
In other words, this is the perfect type of game to get Nebraska fans needlessly riled up, and not in a good way. The Blackshirts have shown a tendency to give up yards before ultimately tightening up inside the 20. If that holds against Kevin Wilson’s Indiana offense, it’ll make for some serious heartburn for total yardage watchers. Let’s take a look at how Indiana likely puts up those yards.
