STARTING FIVE

1. INDIANA FOOTBALL

2. INDIANA BASKETBALL

Northwestern will be a chance to get the first Big Ten win of the season, the IDS’ Ryan Winn wrote.

3. BIG TEN BASKETBALL

The Illini showed some growth by not letting Northwestern back in the game during the second half and finishing with an 88-63 victory, the Champaign News-Gazette’s Paul Klee wrote. Northwestern simply had no answers for the Illini’s offense, the Chicago Tribune’s Teddy Greenstein wrote.

4. BIG TEN FOOTBALL

  1. Power ranking showing IU 11th are off. A road win would be a needed boost to this team. The same level of effort we saw at Minn. get us a win. Major concern is defending the switches!

  2. “Northwestern simply had no answers for the Wildcats’ offense”
    Are you sure this is what you meant to write?

  3. Looking forward to good things with both IU Football and Basketball the next few years. Solid coaches who will recruit well, and hopefully bring solid citizens to Bloomington.
