How to Watch: Will the Penn State Offense Return to Form at Indiana?

Penn State is coming off its only loss of the 2023 season to this point, and now plays Indiana.

The program suffered another loss at Ohio State— its 11th in 13 tries— and lost because the offense didn’t show up.

PSU scored just 12 points, and only six of those points were scored before the last minute.

By that last minute, Penn State was down 20-6 and the game was effectively over. But this week, Penn State has a great chance to bounce back against a dreadful Indiana team and defense. IU’s 2-5 overall and the team’s allowed more than 29 points per game. Indiana’s only wins came against Indiana State and Akron, the latter of which took two overtimes. IU is 0-5 against Power Five competition, which includes being 0-4 in the Big Ten and a loss to Louisville.

This is a series that Penn State’s dominated historically. The teams have played every year since PSU started playing in the Big Ten in 1993, and Penn State is 28-2 against Indiana. Both of IU’s wins (2013, 2020) came in Bloomington, so Indiana has never won in Happy Valley. IU isn’t expected to start this year. Penn State’s favored by 32 points.

That’s hefty.

This will be QB Drew Allar’s first start coming off a loss. The 19-year-old went 18-for-42 with 191 yards last week. People will be watching the former five-star from Medina, Ohio, so it will be intriguing to see how he responds.

For Penn State fans who won’t be in Beaver Stadium today, here’s how to watch and listen to the game.
