Redshirt sophomore quarterback Brendan Sorsby is expected to take the field with the offense for Indiana’s opening drive.
That’s based on The Daily Hoosier observing Sorsby taking first team snaps first in pre-game warm-ups.
Sorsby appeared in one game during his true freshman season at IU a year ago. He played against Penn State last season and was 3-of-6 for eight yards, and threw an interception.
It may not be completely accurate to label Sorsby the full-time starter, however.
As we reported earlier this week, don’t be surprised to see Tayven Jackson play in the game as well.
Both quarterbacks were taking first team snaps during pre-game warm-ups on a rotating basis.
The 6-foot-3 and 230-pound Sorsby attended Lake Dallas High School in Denton, Texas where he was named the Denton Record-Chronicle 2021 Quarterback of the Year. He passed for 1,271 yards and 14 touchdowns, and rushed for 823 yards with 15 TDs. Sorsby averaged 305.6 total yards per game but was limited to seven games due to injury. He was ranked the No. 13 dual-threat quarterback nationally by ESPN.
The 6-foot-3 and 215-pound Jackson transferred to IU from Tennessee during the offseason. He played in three games as a true freshman in Knoxville.
The younger brother of IU basketball great Trayce Jackson-Davis, Jackson was a consensus 4-star recruit out of Center Grove H.S. in the class of 2022.
Indiana and Ohio State kick at 3:30 p.m. ET (CBS).
