Three, 100-yard rushers lead Buckeyes past pesky Indiana


Braxton Miller rushed for 105 yards

When the Ohio State Buckeyes schedule moved to the next opponent, Indiana, everybody from the fans and media felt that the offense was going to rout the struggling and young Hoosiers.

But what we witnessed in Saturday’s game was the complete opposite, a close, game which could’ve been an embarrassing loss.

The Buckeyes however, pulled together late in the game to win 34-20.

A crowd of 105,195 at Ohio Stadium, saw the home team go down 10-0 early, but lead by three, 100-yard rushers, the Buckeyes rolled up 401 yards of total offense.

The game wasn’t decided until Travis Howard intercepted a Tre Roberson pass with 4:07 to go and OSU leading 27-20. That pick led to the Buckeyes scoring a game-clinching TD by running back Carlos Hyde of  2 yards with 2:41 to go to make the score 34-20.

Ohio State’s ground attack was too much for Indiana. Daniel Herron rushed for 141 yards on 14 carries, Carlos Hyde bulled his way to 105 yards on 15 lugs and QB Braxton Miller dashed and slashed his way to 105 yards on 14 rushes. The Buckyes rushed for 346 yards on 46 carries. The last time the Buckeyes had three, 100-yard rushers was in 1989 vs. Northwestern with Scottie Graham, Carlos Snow and Dante Lee pulling the trick.

The win improves the Buckeyes to third straight win. They are 6-3 overall and 3-2 in the Big Ten Leaders Division.

The Hoosiers, dropped their seventh game in a row and are 1-9 overall and 0-6 in the Leaders Division.

Indiana, which rolled up 333 yards on offense, was led by freshman QB Tre Roberson who was 11 of 21 passing for 174 yards and 1 touchdown. The talented signal-caller also rushed for 70 yards. Wide receiver Kofi Hughes also had a big game for the Hoosiers with 147 yards on eight receptions and a touchdown.



Miller probably had the most exciting play of the game in the first quarter. With OSU trailing 10-0, the Buckeyes after an illegal procedure penalty and facing a 2-12-from their own 19, Miller went back to pass and dodged the Indiana rush, ran outside and down the middle of the field and into the clear, he appeared to almost trip at the Indiana 20 but got into the end zone for a touchdown. The 81-yard touchdown was the longest by an Ohio State quarterback and fifth-longest in school history.
