Penn State (6-4 3-3) looks to rebound against Indiana University (4-6 0-6) this Saturday in Maryland.

The game will be played at neutral site at FedEx field in Landover, Maryland. The Hoosiers will be considered the home team. This will be the second neutral site game for the Nittany Lions since joing the Big 10 in 1993. Penn State leads the series 13-0. They were victorious last year in Beaver Stadium 31-20 against the Hoosiers.  Penn State is appearing on television for the 201st time in their last 203 games.

Penn State is 13-2 in its next game after a loss since the 2005 season. Last week they were up on the Buckeyes 14-3 . Unfortunately, the 14 points were the only points the Nittany Lions were able to put up as Ohio State scored 24 unanswered points. Linebacker Chris Colasanti is one of the most valuable players on the Nittany Lion defense, he will have to step up big again this week. The offense will look to establish the run game with Evan Royster who has 772 yards and four touchdowns this season.

Last week, the Hoosiers also lost to Wisconsin in embarrassing fashion 83-20.  Darius Willis is listed as out for this week’s game with a groin injury for the Hoosiers.   Damarlo Belcher is the deep threat for Indiana. He has  69 receptions for 741 yards and four touchdowns this year. Ben Chappell has 2,728 yards in the air,19 touchdowns, and nine interceptions this year. The Hoosiers are the Big Ten Conference’s No. 1 passing offense at 287 yards per game while Penn State has the No. 2 pass defense in the conference.

Penn State looks to stay perfect against the Hoosiers.

Kickoff is at 12:00
