J.K. Dobbins ran for 193 yards and scored twice Saturday while Justin Fields threw three touchdown passes to lead No. 6 Ohio State to a 51-10 rout at Indiana.
The Buckeyes (3-0, 1-0 Big Ten) have won each of their first three games by at least 24 points and extended their winning streak in the series to 24, dating to a tie in 1990. Ohio State hasn’t lost to Indiana since 1988.
Fields opened the scoring with a 3-yard touchdown run, and then hooked up with Chris Olave for a 37-yard TD pass early in the second quarter to make it 14-3. On the ensuing Indiana series, Olave blocked a punt out of the end zone for a safety, and Dobbins’ slicing 56-yard run set up a 9-yard TD pass from Fields to K.J. Hill Jr. for a 23-3 lead.
Dobbins reached the end zone by breaking a handful of tackles on a 26-yard run to make it 30-3.
Indiana finally answered when Ramsey threw to Donovan Hale, who turned and found Peyton Hendershot wide open for a 49-yard TD pass. It was the first touchdown allowed in the first half this season by Ohio State.
Dobbins, who ran for 175 yards in the first half, caught a 4-yard TD pass from Fields early in the third quarter. Master Teague added a 40-yard TD run with 4:58 left in the quarter to make it 44-10.
Fields was 14 of 24 for 193 yards. Teague had 10 carries for 106 yards.
Ramsey was 20 of 34 for 166 yards, one interception and was sacked four times — the first sacks allowed by the Hoosiers this season.
It was the most lopsided margin in the series since the Buckeyes’ 44-3 victory in 2006.
