There were no shortage of stellar performances from Ohio State's 54-7 win over Indiana, and five Buckeyes were honored accordingly on Sunday.

C.J. Stroud, Jeremy Ruckert, Zach Harrison, Teradja Mitchell and Demario McCall all earned player of the game honors from Ohio State for their performances in the Buckeyes’ rout of the Hoosiers.

Stroud and Ruckert split the team's offensive player of the game honors. Stroud, who also earned offensive player of the game honors for his performance against Rutgers, had another prolific performance through the air on Saturday night, completing 21 of his 28 passing attempts for 266 yards and four touchdowns. Ruckert was the recipient of five of those catches – a career-high for him – including two touchdowns.

Harrison took defensive player of the game honors for the second time this season after he recorded two tackles for loss in Bloomington.

Mitchell and McCall split special teams player of the game honors for the Indiana win, with McCall earning the special teams award for a second time this season. Both of them played on multiple special teams units against the Hoosiers.

The Buckeyes will look to keep things rolling next week when they host No. 20 Penn State in their first game against a ranked opponent since their loss to Oregon in their second game of the season.
