Braxton Miller ran for two scores including a record 81-yarder and Travis Howard ended Indiana's last chance at tying it with an interception, leading Ohio State to a 34-20 victory on Saturday.
The victory was the third in a row for the Buckeyes (6-3, 3-2 Big Ten), but it didn't come easy.
Not until Howard picked off Tre Roberson's pass at the Ohio State 28 with 4:07 left were the Buckeyes assured of the win.
Three Buckeyes topped 100 yards rushing: Dan Herron with 141 yards on 14 carries, Carlos Hyde with 105 on 15 and Miller with 105 on 14. Hyde added a clinching touchdown after the interception.
Roberson rushed for 84 yards and passed for 174 and a touchdown for the Hoosiers (1-9, 0-6), who lost their seventh in a row.
