    BIG TEN'S ELITE, STATISTICALLY SPEAKING AND RECORD WISE
    The Hoosier lineup is potent and deep, leading to Indiana sitting atop of every major offensive statistical offensive category in the Big Ten. Don't sleep on the pitching, however, as the Hoosier hurlers' 2.42 team earned run average is also tops in the conference. For the "only thing that matters is wins and losses" crowd, don't fret. Indiana's 29-8 record (.784) is also the B1G's best.
