Nebraska and Indiana are locked in a tight Big Ten contest. This game means a lot to both teams.

The Huskers have been disappointing to say the least, going 4-3 and 2-2 in Big Ten play. A win versus Indiana is a must, especially considering Nebraska's remaining schedule poses several tough challenges.

Indiana has surprised many after a 5-2 start. For a program which has struggled to gain relevance in the Big Ten, beating Nebraska would be monumental.

Indiana currently leads 31-24 at the start of the fourth quarter. Both teams are giving it all they got. But Nebraska fans feel that Indiana's players are faking injuries.

Nebraska has attempted to speed up the tempo on offense to get into a better rhythm. But as several Huskers fans have pointed out, several Indiana players have gone down with injuries just as NU gets into said rhythm.

"Indiana faked injury count: 5. NCAA - they should literally get the death penalty for this," a Nebraska fan said.

"Are we still claiming these aren't fake injuries....Every time we start playing tempo and getting a rhythm, like clockwork a no contact injury away from the play for Indiana," said another.

It's safe to say Nebraska fans aren't happy with Indiana's supposed injuries.
