Indiana Vs. Ohio State Score: Hoosiers Briefly Threaten Upset, But Buckeyes Bounce Back

You knew that wasn't going to last forever. Indiana jumped out to a 10-point lead against Ohio State on Mitch Ewald's 35-yard field goal and Stephen Houston's five-yard rushing touchdown and it wasn't impossible to think that the Buckeyes might be in for an upset. But Indiana's 1-8, with the win coming against FCS opponent South Carolina State, so part of you kind of knew that Ohio State would find a way to fight off the challenge.

Then Ohio State's Braxton Miller took off for an 81-yard touchdown run to finish off a two-play drive, and the deficit was cut to 10-7. Add on a 36-yard field goal by Drew Basil, and suddenly the Buckeyes are back in the game. Just like you thought.

Miller's also 2-of-3 passing for 51 yards, though he's run for 71 yards overall -- he's been sacked three times already in this one. Ohio State has the game's lone turnover -- a fumble that set up Houston's score.
