Jerome Baker silenced Cornhusker fans Saturday night.

Ohio State's offense is on a roll.

The latest victim: Nebraska. The Buckeyes rolled into Memorial Stadium Saturday night and demolished the Cornhuskers to the tune of 56-14.

It was the program's 500th Big Ten win and moved the Buckeyes into a tie with Nebraska for third on the all-time wins list among college teams.

Let's take a journey through the GIFs of the game. To view the GIFs, hover on desktop or touch on your mobile device.

After holding to Nebraska to a 3-and-out to start the game, the Buckeyes took over on their own 4-yard-line for their first drive. Eight plays in and they had reached midfield, where J.K. Dobbins did the rest, racing around the left end 52 yards for a touchdown to put Ohio State up 7-0.

You can see tight end Rashod Berry with a nice block to spring Dobbins. The freshman would finish the night with 106 yards on 12 carries – his third 100-yard game of the season.

Ohio State forced another 3-and-out and then embarked on a 9-play, 85-yard drive capped by this 6-yard J.T. Barrett keeper. Barrett didn't see any receivers he liked, and Nebraska made it way too easy for him to keep it for six.

Ah, the rare extra point GIF. Here's Ohio State kicker Sean Nuernberger officially making it 14-0, Ohio State. This is important because it was his 142nd consecutive made extra point, good enough for a new Big Ten record.

After forcing another Nebraska punt, Ohio State went 80 yards in 8 plays, capped by this Barrett to K.J. Hill toss for 16 yards and a score. 21-0, Buckeyes.

Another Nebraska 3-and-out, followed by another Ohio State touchdown. This time, it's Barrett to Terry McLaurin for a beautiful 31-yard toss and catch to put the Buckeyes up 28-0.

Linebacker Jerome Baker turned in the hit of the game on Nebraska's ensuing possession, destroying Mikale Wilbon (while being blocked, no less).

After Nebraska turned the ball over on downs, the Buckeyes struck again, going 59 yards in 8 plays to make it 35-0. J.T. Barrett got the touchdown with a 3-yard keeper on a perfect read with Dobbins. It was Barrett's second rushing touchdown of the first half.

Five drives, five touchdowns for Ohio State at this point.

Nebraska didn't have much of anything going in the first half. They were held to just over 100 yards and shut out by the Ohio State defense, but they did almost cash in on a Hail Mary at the end of the half. Cornhusker wide receiver De'Mornay Pierson-El probably should have scored here.

The second half would be more of the same: Ohio State rolling against a Nebraska defense that wasn't much interested in putting up a fight. On the Buckeyes' opening possession, J.T. Barrett led his team on a 9-play, 75-yard drive, finishing with this 16-yard touchdown strike to a wide-open Rashod Berry.

42-0, Ohio State, three minutes into the 3rd quarter.

Nebraska finally found points when quarterback Tanner Lee found one-time Ohio State lacrosse commmit J.D. Spielman for a 77-yard catch-and-run score. Spielman, the nephew of Buckeye great Chris Spielman, would go on to break Nebraska's single game receiving record on the night, hauling in 11 receptions for 200 yards.

Ohio State answered, going 75 yards in 7 plays, capped by this Barrett to Marcus Baugh touchdown covering 18 yards. 49-7, Buckeyes, midway through the 3rd.

The final scoring of the night came early in the 4th, when Barrett found Hill again, this time for 6 yards. It was Barrett's fifth passing touchdown of the night, and 7th touchdown overall, when you factor in his two rushing touchdowns.
