After a disappointing loss to Cincinnati in Week 4, Indiana football looks to rebound against a distraught Nebraska team after a week off for the Huskers. This game is very important for both teams, who both have really tough conference schedules over the next couple weeks.
The last time the Hoosiers faced off against Nebraska, Indiana came out on top, 38-31 in Lincoln. The player of the game in 2019 was Whop Philyor, who had 14 receptions for 178 receiving yards and a touchdown with quarterback, Peyton Ramsey totaling 350+ passing yards in the game.
Who will step up for the Hoosiers in 2022? What’s going to happen in Week 5?
Bold predictions for Indiana football vs. Cincinnati
#3. Cam Camper grabs 10+ receptions for 125+ receiving yards for the second consecutive week
Last week, Camper was the obvious favorite target for quarterback, Connor Bazelak, and he totaled 10 receptions for 126 receiving yards. Though my expectation is that the Hoosiers will focus on establishing the running game early and often to build confidence in the offensive line, Camper will still be relied on by Bazelak and Walt Bell in this offense on Saturday.
The junior college transfer currently sits second in the Big Ten in total receptions (33), and third in the Big Ten in total receiving yards (418) through four weeks. If one of the worst rushing defenses in the country can somehow limit Indiana football this weekend, expect even more from Camper and the IU passing attack in Week 5.
