The Indiana baseball team's 15-game winning streak is the longest in the nation, and the Hoosiers believe bigger things lie ahead.

The Hoosiers (22-3, 6-0 Big Ten) already have won series against national powers Louisville and Florida, and now have their sights set on winning the Big Ten regular-season championship for the first time since 1949. They even believe they can make it to the College World Series.

Indiana is ranked as high as No. 16 in the major polls after having never cracked the top 25 before this season. The Hoosiers are in the top 10 in batting (.324), runs per game (7.8) and ERA (2.24).

Sophomore catcher Kyle Schwarber leads Indiana with a .413 batting average and six home runs.
