In what could end up as another black eye for the Big Ten, Indiana is getting spanked by one of the ACC's weakest teams.
Virginia has jumped all over the Hoosiers, capitalizing on two turnovers and streaking to a 21-0 lead. Cavaliers quarterback Jameel Sewell and running back Mikell Simpson are both turning in big performances against a regressing Indiana defense.
Hoosiers quarterback Ben Chappell has done some nice things in the passing game, completing 11 of 15 attempts, but Indiana hasn't been able to break through for a big play. The run game has been quiet so far.
Indiana needs to find a way to get on the scoreboard before halftime or this could be a very long afternoon.
