It looks like the 3 largest collegiate football teams in Indiana will be very competitive this year. Notre Dame got off to a good start by routing Temple on Saturday. The fighting Irish are trying to recover from their disastrous season last year.
Both Indiana and Purdue were extremely competitive against highly ranked opponents. IU still led Ohio State in the 3rd quarter before losing to the Buckeyes. Purdue led even longer against Louisville before losing late in the 4th quarter of their game. Both IU and Purdue are under new coaches and showed a lot of enthusiasm.
Ball State should have beaten Illinois, but lost by a field goal. They could be looking at a decent MAC season.
