A historic season for Indiana football became even more when the Hoosiers entered the top 25 polls for the first time since 1994.. While the College Football Playoff committee may not be in on the #9WINDIANA movement, Auston and Jacob are firmly on board as they bring another episode of The Podcast Was Good.

After reveling in the fact that the Hoosiers are ranked, Jacob breaks down the bowl outlook and some of the current projections. Indiana currently is slated most likely to go to the Gator Bowl but an upset in the coming weeks over Penn State or Michigan would shake things up..

Speaking of upsets, the two then jump into a preview of a match-up on the road against Penn State. The Nittany Lions are coming off an upset on the road themselves against Minnesota but are still one of the best teams in the conference. Offensively, Penn State has two dynamic weapons and a young, improving quarterback that has wreaked havoc this year. Defensively, Penn State has a top-10 unit but also was torn apart last week by the Gophers, offering a blueprint for a Hoosier upset.

Lastly, the duo looks at the huge win from the women’s basketball team, acknowledge the men’s team’s existence and preview the semi-final match-up against Maryland for the men’s soccer team in the Big Ten Tournament.
