Bucks rolling; Cats reeling

INDIANAPOLIS -- 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.

ARKANSAS EYES MOMENTUM AGAINST REELING KENTUCKY: Arkansas has its sights set on a two-game winning streak Saturday when it hosts Kentucky, though it will have to do so without its top two defensive players.

The Razorbacks (2-4, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) snapped a four-game losing streak with a win at Auburn last week, led by eight sacks on defense and keeping their slim bowl game hopes alive.

Following the win, Arkansas found out that linebackers Alonzo Highsmith and Tenarius Wright had been lost for the season with injuries.

The struggling Wildcats (1-5, 0-3) are no strangers to injuries this season, the latest being a high ankle sprain that will keep freshman quarterback Patrick Towles out against the Razorbacks. Freshman Jalen Whitlow is expected to start in his place.
