Star of the game

Justin Fields threw four touchdown passes and ran for two more TDs, all in the second quarter. He has accounted for 19 total touchdowns in his first four starts, with at least one touchdown pass and one touchdown run each game.

Stat that mattered

42: Ohio State scored a touchdown on six consecutive drives in the second quarter, totaling 42 points. It was the highest-scoring quarter for the Buckeyes since at least 1960, surpassing the 34 points in the first quarter against Florida A&M in 2013.

Big picture

After a sluggish start, giving up a safety and field goal to open the game, the Buckeyes rolled overmatched Miami in their final nonconference tune-up. Relatively untested through four weeks, Ohio State has a trip to Nebraska next week followed by a visit from Michigan State.
