The Buckeyes increased their lead over Indiana to 30-10 at halftime as Justin Fields hit Chris Olave and K.J. Hill with touchdown tosses in the second quarter and J.K. Dobbins bulled into the end zone from 26-yards out. The Hoosiers scored on a trick play with 1:07 to go in the half.

Olave’s TD reception went for 37 yards to give the Buckeyes a 14-3 lead.
