INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Ohio State has held the upper hand against Indiana for decades.

New coach Urban Meyer knows it won't matter Saturday night.

He knows one of the Midwest's most lopsided college football series' has evolved from stodgy, smash-mouth football of years past into an up-tempo pace that could be one of the Big Ten's most entertaining games this weekend.

Both teams are scoring more than 32 points per game.

The Buckeyes (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten) are the highest-ranked team and only undefeated team left in the league. Indiana (2-3, 0-2) has the conference's No. 1 passing offense (305.2).

The Hoosiers have lost 17 straight games to the Buckeyes.
