Star of the game

Dwayne Haskins Jr., who topped 400 passing yards for the first time, threw for an Ohio State record-tying six touchdowns. Three of those came in the first half, three in the second as the Buckeyes slowly pulled away.

Turning point

A 67-yard, 10-play drive at the start of the fourth quarter that Haskins capped with a 17-yard TD pass to Terry McLaurin to increase the lead to 42-26. It was kept alive by a 3-yard run by J.K. Dobbins on fourth-and-1 at the Indiana 47.

 

Repercussions

Poll voters aren’t going to like seeing Ohio State having such a battle royale against a 26½-point underdog. But what matters most when the calendar flips to October is just winning. The No. 3 Buckeyes moved to 6-0.
