Michigan holds the league record with 29 straight victories from 1901-03. ... Ohio State has won 17 in a row over the Hoosiers. ... One of the best offenses in Big Ten history will face one of the worst. While Buckeyes lead the Big Ten and rank fourth nationally in scoring with 49.4 points per game, Indiana’s defense is 124th nationally. The Hoosiers’ six Big Ten opponents have averaged 582.5 yards — a rate well on course to blow past the previous league record for futility held by Northwestern in 1981 (523.1 yards). ... Indiana’s saving grace is its offense, which is second in the conference averaging 39.1 points. ... The Hoosiers are the first team in Big Ten history and the only team in the FBS with five career 1,000-yard receivers on the same team. The quintuplet: Cody Latimer (123 receptions for 1,872 yards), Kofi Hughes (120, 1,782), Shane Wynn (118, 1,379), Ted Bolser (112-1,313), and Duwyce Wilson (81, 1,043). ... Buckeyes senior Carlos Hyde is 47 rushing yards away from becoming coach Urban Meyer’s first 1,000-yard tailback. Hyde has ran for 821 yards (8.3 yards per carry) and 11 TDs in his last five games.
