It was closer than it should have been and mother of god, that defense, but Urban Meyer's Buckeyes improved to 7-0 with a 52-49 win over the Hoosiers in Bloomington Saturday night.
Braxton Miller racked up 360 total yards of offense (149 on the ground and 211 through the air) to go with two passing and one rushing touchdown. Running back Carlos Hyde turned in his second strong showing in a row, finishing with 156 yards and two total touchdowns (giving him six in two games), and Devin Smith hauled in two very important passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns.
Oh, Zach Boren, in his first game at linebacker, led the defense in tackles with eight.
Here is your game in GIFs.
Miller to Smith for another bomb on the right sideline. Shades of East Lansing.
Braxton goes 67 yards to put the Buckeyes up 31-17 minutes into the third quarter.
Kenny Guiton comes on in relief of the injured Miller and hits Carlos Hyde with a nifty shuffle pass for a 14 yard touchdown to put Ohio State up 38-24.
As if to make up for the two touchdowns he had dropped, Devin Smith takes a hitch, breaks two tackles and outraces the Hoosier defense for a 46 yard touchdown to put Ohio State up 52-34 with 7:41 to go in the game.
