COLUMBUS (WCMH) — After the shutout win against the Cincinnati Bearcats, the Ohio State Buckeyes and head coach Ryan Day now turn their attention to the Indiana Hoosiers.
Day started his weekly news conference saying he expects the Hoosiers to bring their best game against the Buckeyes.
“They’ve got a good team. They’re a couple of years into their system on defense, with guys on that side flying around. They’re doing a good job. The new coordinator on offense, so we know going on the road, first conference game in the Big Ten, every time we play Indiana it’s a tough game,” said Day.
When asked about Justin Fields play against Cincinnati, Day stated he thought it was a solid performance but there’s room for improvement.
“Overall, I thought it was a pretty clean game. There’s going to be things that show up. He got away with a couple of throws that as maybe the competition increases he won’t, but overall it was solid and we got to keep building on it.”
The Buckeyes and Hoosier are both undefeated at 2-0 on the season, with this game being the conference opener for both teams. The game is scheduled for noon, Saturday, at Indiana, and when it comes to playing on the road, Day said it was all about taking each play as it goes.
“As a team, we know how to run the ball, take care of the football, stop the run, and then we got to play with toughness. That’s how you win on the road.”
