This week's impact player: Matt Stankiewitch, fifth-year senior center

This game has the potential to be a lopsided affair, and Stankiewitch could play a crucial role in determining just how much. The Hoosiers have allowed 244 rushing yards a game -- the third-worst mark in the country -- and have permitted more than five yards a carry. That means Penn State is likely to run it early and run it often, and nowhere is Indiana's defense more experienced than the interior.
