Here are some news bits heading into Saturday's game against Indiana.

    Coach Bill Lynch is preparing the Hoosiers for crowd noise at InfoCision Stadium. That was never a concern the past 68 years.
    Lynch invited referees to practice to help cut down penalties. His team leads the Big Ten with 21 enforced penalties (three were declined). Thirteen of the penalties occurred before the snap.
    The Hoosiers' offense has struggled in the redzone, according to the Indianapolis Star. In 12 trips, they have only scored four touchdowns and four field goals. Although they are 2-0, they were only a few plays away from losing to Eastern Kentucky and Western Michigan.
    ESPN.com talked about how Indiana's stud defensive ends, Jammie Kirlew and Greg Middleton, came up with big plays to stop potential game-winning drives the past two weeks.
    Indiana has never lost a road game against a MAC team. The Hoosiers have traveled to MAC stadiums five times.
    HoosierNation.com points out that it has been 115 years since Akron beat a Big Ten team. Happily, that win was against the school that plays in Columbus.
