The Hoosiers’ recent resurgence under coach Tom Allen hit some resistance against top competition this season. The Hoosiers lost their opener, 34-6, at No. 2 Iowa, fell 38-24 at home against No. 4 Cincinnati and got shut out, 24-0, at No. 8 Penn State on Oct. 2. However, they also struggled to escape a road game at Western Kentucky, 33-31, and are expected to be without quarterback Michael Penix Jr. for an extended period of time with a separated throwing shoulder he suffered against the Nittany Lions.
