The Hilltoppers are without Leon Allen, who gained 1,500 yards last season, but injured his knee last week. He is out the rest of the year. Also not in the mix is Ace Wells who has been dealing with hamstring issues.

WKU beat reporter Chad Bishop chimes in on the running back situation, and whether WKU can upset Indiana, and start the season 3-0.
