Why Indiana State can cover

Despite that, the Hoosiers are not a lock to cover the Indiana State vs. Indiana spread. That’s because the Sycamores have a solid defense, led by sophomore defensive back Maddix Blackwell. Blackwell led the team with 11 tackles, including five solo, with one interception he returned 35 yards. He is in his second season with the Sycamores. Last year, he finished with 43 tackles, including 26 solo, with one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one interception.

It appears junior quarterback Gavin Screws will step in for starting quarterback Cade Chambers, who was a scratch for the season opener. Chambers is the reigning Missouri Valley Football Conference Freshman of the Year. Screws completed 13 of 24 passes (54.2%) for 116 yards and two interceptions in the loss to Eastern Illinois. He is in his second year at Indiana State. In 2022, he was the team’s backup, completing 64 of 121 passes (52.9%) for 683 yards, one touchdown and six interceptions.
