Can you feel it? The electricity in the air is always on full tilt for Indiana week, amirite?
In an effort to quench your thirst for exciting B1G action, we're back with another contest to act as a supplement to your Buckeye gameday experience.
Over the last two weeks, Ohio State's rush defense has faced two of the league's best running backs in Jeremy Langford and David Cobb. Langford hit the Bullets for 137 yards on 7.6 per carry in a 49-37 Buckeye victory while Cobb racked up 145 on a solid but not spectacular 5.4 yards per carry in a 31-24 win for the good guys.
This week, the Buckeyes face another stud running back in Indiana's Tevin Coleman. The junior out of Tinley Park, Illinois is coming off a 307 yard performance against Rutgers and he's averaging 159.8 rush yards per game in conference play which ranks him just behind league-leader Melvin Gordon.
With the Buckeyes intent on showing they can stop the run, your challenge this week will be to peg exactly how many rushing yards Coleman will have when the game clock strikes zero in the Shoe. If no entrant nails Coleman's rushing yardage exactly, we'll take the person closest to the final tally while employing the usual Price Is Right tie-breaker (person closest without going over).
The prize this week is cap of your choice from 11W Drygoods. At present, we have three different caps in stock, all featuring the official 11W seal, including our mesh trucker hat and both scarlet and gray snapbacks. (May I also remind the 400+ of you that will emerge as losers, these caps make for a fantastic holiday gift.)
