Good teams win, great teams cover 💰

Michael Penix Jr: First QB with 400+ pass yds on the road vs Ohio State since Jim Everett in 1985.
Ohio State won, but the story to me is Indiana. Michael Penix outplayed Justin Fields, Tom Allen outcoached Ryan Day, they were great in the pass rush and secondary. There should be zero doubters after today: The Hoosiers are... FOR REAL
Despite the loss, Indiana's Michael Penix Jr. becomes only the 3rd player all-time with 400 Pass yds and 5 TDs in a game against the Buckeyes.
He joins Minnesota's Mike Hohensee (1981) and Illinois' Dave Wilson (1980). Hohensee is the only one in this trio to win the game.
Michael Penix Jr's career day still wasn't enough against Ohio State (35-42)

Prediction: Michael Penix will enter next season as a Heisman favorite. #iufb
Michael Penix Jr: 210 air yards vs Ohio State🚀
Most allowed by the Buckeyes this season.
There’s more to QB play than a stat line... would take me multiple hands to count how many poorly thrown balls I saw from Penix today https://t.co/ratGO75Sey
FOX analyst Brady Quinn said Indiana QB Michael Penix Jr. outplayed Ohio State's Justin Fields "and it wasn't even close."
Plenty for Ohio State to work on. I see all the concerns and the need to finish games... but credit to Indiana and Tom Allen. They reflect his ‘no quit’ attitude and Penix, Fryfogel & Philyor are excellent. There are issues—but it’s a win over a top 10 team. It could be worse
IU football isn't cute anymore. The Hoosiers are for real — and closing the gap on Ohio State: https://t.co/1mCdXLm3Py
IU wants to be taken seriously as a Big Ten program. Loss aside, games like this are an important step in that direction, both for the overall and the individual performances. Insider: https://t.co/lG85Un0Yvs
That whole Michael Penix not being good enough to play QB at FSU thing? Yeah, that didn’t age so well.
Despite three uncharacteristic INTs from QB Justin Fields, No. 3 Ohio State fended off No. 9 Indiana 42-35 to remain undefeated.
headline is available for all to read.
Put some respect to this teams name. And Michael Penix absolutely out played Justin Fields.
At the end of the day, always remember; Good teams win, great teams cover
Michael Penix Jr.’s 491 passing yards were the fourth-most ever thrown against Ohio State, behind only Illinois’ Dave Wilson (621) in 1980, Purdue’s Scott Campbell (516) in 1981 and Purdue’s Jim Everett (497) in 1985.
Listen Davondre, not gonna attack you personally because this isn’t personal lol, Penix was up and down and I have no horse in the race here. You are clearly biased as someone who was on the team (as you should be) but this isn’t personal. I realize he also made some great plays
Trailing 28-7 at halftime, #iufb refused to lay down and quit.
Michael Penix Jr. stayed poised under the national spotlight. Ty Fryfogle made Big Ten history.
, on how No. 9 IU nearly pulled off a comeback behind its two offensive catalysts:
"Really, if we don’t give up those big plays, you probably run away with this game." Instead, Indiana QB Michael Penix exploited Ohio State's defensive lapses, and the Buckeyes held on with white knuckles. https://t.co/YkecrPqs84
I mean this in the most respectful way possible: if Peyton Ramsey can beat Wisconsin, Penix can do it, too. #iufb
I'll say I had about 12 heart attacks watching the game today. I knew penix and IU's WR was stacked (I play B1G fantasty football) didn't expect them to come in and sling it to the tune of almost 500 yards though.
Michael Penix looks like a black Kellen Moore throwing the football. A lefty who appears to be recovering from shoulder surgery with his release yet gets the ball there more times than not.
Penix refusing to go down #cantrelate
