Bloomington at night. It doesn't happen often, but when it does, there be magic.

Not many are calling for Saturday's game to be close, but that shouldn't stop you from daring to go nail-biter in our weekly score prediction contest.

To enter, leave a comment with your prediction of the final score for Saturday's game against the Hoosiers. If you nail the score—or come closest—you'll get to name your shirt from the impressive collection at Eleven Warriors Dry Goods. It will make you feel good.

Last week's winner, Colby3333, knew the Shoe would be an inferno and will be rewarded handsomely.

The fine print:

  • Must be 18 years-old or older.
  • One entry/comment per person.
  • Duplicate predictions are ineligible — first come, first serve.
  • If Ohio State loses this game, there will be no contest winner. You're still free to enter a score, but there will be no shirt in sadness.
  • Deadline for entries is kickoff.

Good luck!

Bucks scrape by 24-17. No worries, I've been way off on my other score predictions this season, so me doing this only ensures that OSU absolutely dominates. I'm a superstitious guy.

Have you tried Not Your Father's Root Beer?  It tastes just like the real thing, but it packs a punch (5.9%ABV).  It's a little sweet for me though.  Two is my limit.

You guys are crazy. Why would Urban give anyone good game tape this week? He is going to keep it bread and butter, back to basics. Same with the D!

side note -- for anybody going to Bloomington Saturday, it my be a little cloudy with a 20% chance of rain, but the high will be 75! No need need for a heavy coat

Indiana will be up for their only night game ever (prolly).  Our coaches will be running pure vanilla plays.  XBrax will get 6 carries (maybe).  And the players will be taking the win for granted.  All that equals closer game than it should be.

Real fans stay for Carmen.

Or 80-34. I can't decide.
(Use the first one for my guess.)

Because we couldn't go for three.

OSU: a lot
IU: not as much.
Or, using numbers, OSU 59, IU 10

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Well, I had a dream Satuday night, after that amazing beat down of Nebraska, in which the Buckeyes destroyed Indiana 90 - something. Probably crazy, but hey, might as well...

The Ohio State Buckeyes - 90
Indiana Losiers - 10

Because I couldnt go for 3.

Bucks 56-28, Indiana can score and we just lost another linebacker. Game will be much like the Nebraka game

We don't score field goals. They get some big plays but can't finish and use our field goal allotment, but also get one broken-tackle TD.
