Dwayne Haskins had the best passing performance of his career during Ohio State's 49-26 win over Indiana, and it nearly put him in the record books.
With his 455 passing yards, Haskins had his best passing performance as a Buckeye and finished just three yards shy of Art Schlichter's single-game passing record which he set in a loss to Florida State in 1981.
Haskins was 33-for-44, completing 75 percent of his throws – drastically better than Schlichter's 59.6 percent – and threw for six touchdowns, tying J.T. Barrett and Kenny Guiton's single-game record.

Haskins is also on pace to break almost all of Ohio State's single-season passing records, including total passing yardage, completion percentage, touchdowns and yards per game.
His 25 touchdown passes through six games already rank fifth for a single season in Ohio State history. Haskins has been so good, it seems like he's setting a Big Ten first every other week.
It's Dwayne Haskins world. We're just living in it.
