Ian Thomas of Indiana pulled in an amazing touchdown catch against Ohio State on Thursday night

The No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes are starting their 2017 season on the road in Bloomington to take on the Indiana Hoosiers, in a game that many expect them to win pretty handily. Well, very early on in this one, things are going anyway but handily for the Buckeyes, and that’s thanks in part to the receiving efforts of tight end Ian Thomas.

Ohio State started the game with the ball, but were unable to come away with a touchdown, settling for a field goal instead. It would then be Indiana’s turn with the ball for the first time this season, and they made one hell of a statement against one of the best teams in the country.

The Hoosiers drove the ball down the field and they did cap their first drive off with a touchdown and it will go down as one of the best haul-ins of the year. Ian Thomas was able to pull the ball in and keep his feet in bounds somehow, and after a review, it was ruled that the Hoosiers got the six points.

The review didn’t take that long, although some were arguing that it wasn’t a catch initially. However, after some closer looks, it was rightfully ruled a score and Indiana had all the fans in Bloomington buzzing early on Thursday night.

There’s still a lot of time to go in this game, but right off the bat Indiana did a good job of showing the No. 2 team in the country that they’re not here to just roll over and play dead. More plays like this, and the Buckeyes will find themselves in some serious trouble the first game of the year.
