The Indiana State Hoosiers drops in neutral territory to battle the Ball State Cardinals at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis,Indiana on Saturday noon. The Hoosiers enter this season hoping to snatch a spot in the Bowl of 2019; the team is 27 years out of the stage trying to get an appearance in the tournament. Indiana has a new QB and offensive coordinator to boost the Hoosiers and further develop their attacks on the pitch. The team will have 15 returning players with RB Stevie Scott who had 1137 rushing yards on 228 tries with 10 TDs at an average of 5.0 yards per carry last year, but fell to a 5-7 win/loss finish and falling under the .500 mark last season.

Indiana has DE James Head, a threat to other teams for his pass rushing ability with LB/S Marcelino Ball, also a lethal defense unit in the field. Last year, second year RB Steven Scott III performed very well and was one of the leaders in production in the Big 10 Conference rushing over 100 yards six times while finishing that mark in 4 of their 5 matches in the last season. Scott will most likely speed off with these statistics against the Cardinals. Indiana is 15-5 SU in its last 20 contests against a rival in the Mid-East Conference (MAC) and 4 out of 6 games played on a Saturday went over the totals. The Indiana Hoosiers are under the leadership of Tom Allen that is in hot water to deliver the goods this season.
