Tough timing.

Indiana has hung tough with Ohio State all night, so it's fair for Hoosiers fans to be excited about the fact that they've been competitive with one of the best programs in the country. But they chose the wrong time to take a dig at the Buckeyes.

After Indiana took a 21-20 lead midway through the third quarter, fans in the stands began to chant "overrated" at Ohio State - which is ranked No. 2.

The Buckeyes scored a 74-yard touchdown - a pitch and catch from J.T. Barrett to Parris Campbell - on the next play.

Yikes.

Ohio State leads 27-21 late in the third.
